Barale Fratelli

Paolo Basso

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Impressive nose of blackcurrant, fresh red cherries, smoky aromas. Rich, powerful and complex, it displays ripe and rich tannins which support the intense finish.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Reduced at first then clean, drying tannins. Could use a bit more fruit and lacks a little freshness.

Michael Garner

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Woody and withdrawn: pruney notes. Ripe, round and full with quite concentrated fruit flavours. Drying finish.
