2009 BAROLO: 90/100
This traditionally crafted Barolo has a balsamic fragrance of sage, leather and berry notes. The palate shows wild cherry and mint flavors, and bracing but ripe tannins. This is one to open soon or to enjoy over the next few years.
This traditionally crafted single-vineyard Barolo shows the forward nature of the vintage but is an excellent effort, with overripe berry, truffle and forest floor aromas. The palate shows ripe black cherry, prune and spice with firm but fine tannins. This is almost ready now – enjoy it over the next few years.
