I had dinner a couple of weeks ago with a number of Barolo producers at Osteria Veglio, which is one of my favorite spots in the Langhe. The view is great too on a hot summer's night looking across the valley at some of the best vineyards of Barolo. Near the end of the dinner, something popped into my head. Is it better to never decant Barolos before you serve them? Just open, let it breathe and/or serve from the bottle.

Three were from 2006—La Basseta, La Creau, and Artigas—and there was a new wine from the estate called Els Pics from 2007. I was impressed, even a little dismayed, how concentrated these wines were. I have tasted many of these new-wave Spanish wines, and I do find them fascinating. I am not sure I can drink some of them though. They can just be too much.
