Barolo 2009: panel tasting results
Filippo Broccardo & Flli, Monforte d’Alba
Decanter average score: 17.75pts/20 (92/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: Paolo Basso 18 Ian D’Agata 17.5 Michael Garner 17.5
Spicy oak aromas of vanilla and liquorice. Fresh and rich on the palate at first, then smooth and balanced. Very pure red fruit and polished (though still chewy) tannins. Needs time.
