Paolo Basso

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Cloves, red cherries, blackcurrant and sweet spices. Rich, highly extracted with an lot of rich and slightly dry tannins

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Another tannic behemoth from Serralunga, with enough fruit to buffer the tannic clout. Long and clean but needs both time and food. Lovely floral perfume.

Michael Garner

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Round and spicy with notes of blueberry and cinnamon and a savoury edge. Full, up-front flavours of plum and liquorice. Long and beautifully balanced. Could develop further.
