Back Labels and Single Vineyard 1974 Barolo

Below are various back labels for the 1974 Barolo. These indicate that some bottles are from Vigna Rionda, while others are not. This indicated by the bottle numbers. So far, we know that bottle numbers 10,001 to 21,101 are from Rionda, bottle numbers 21,102 to 23,721 are from Baudana, and bottle numbers 28,084 to 32,705 are not from a specified vineyard. If you run across any numbers not covered here, please send photos.

The information I have on these bottles is summarized here:

Troglia Bottlings

I have not seen any Troglia bottlings in 1974. But Chambers Street has sold at least one, so they do exist. If you have photos of one, please send them.
