Tim's Wine Market

This quarter, we are going to take a deep dive into the Piedmont region of Italy and examine wines from three different communes. For reference, I chose a Barolo from the legendary 2013 vintage. For regular Barolo fans, this wine will refresh your memory of the brilliance of Barolo. However, if you are not a devotee, this will introduce you to what I consider the world’s greatest, cellar-worthy values. We will then point our attention north and look at two wines from the regions closer to the Alps, where a renaissance is happening in forgotten communes abandoned in the first half of the 20th century. Please let me know what you think of these selections, because I am an enormous fan of this category and believe no cellar is complete without them.
