In this excellent vintage, our 2009 Barolo is garnet red with ruby highlights.
The nose is intense, with clear spicy overtones fleshed out by sweet fruit showing immediate ripeness; its typical character is emphasized by slight hints of liquorice and an elegant balsamic note.
On the palate it is intense and mouth-filling, with vigorous tannins.
