With the Barolo 2017 EP Offer due to be released in May 2021, I thought it prudent to do some advance homework. And I found this article from Fine & Rare that may shed some light on the quality of the vintage. For those who missed out last year for the fabled 2016’s, here may be a good vintage that you do not have to wait decades before you can get stuck in.
After the feeding frenzy that surrounded the 2016 Offer, I imagine that some members have suffered disillusionment and might not bother
with the 2017’s.
That may be a BIG mistake.
If you missed out on Burlotto and the like in 2016, you will probably have a good chance with the Algorithm which has an elephantine memory for the 2017’s.
The best wines should get shared around the membership, and failure to take part in this potentially very good offer, will enable others to scoop up the best.
I imagine that @Sarah
will be hard at work securing allocations of the best wines for us, as I write. Very good, earlier maturing wines WILL
be on offer, DO NOT MISS OUT!!
