Decanter experts give their verdict, tasting notes and drinking windows on Pomerol wines from the Barolo 2008 vintage.

Difficult weather led to variable quality, but the one common thread in these Barolos is firm tannins. While in the best examples this promises classic, ageworthy wines like 1978, Tom Maresca recommends the basic wines over the crus for more immediate enjoyment. See his top picks here…
