Paolo Basso

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Goudron, smoked aromas, liquorice. Round and harmonious, deep character and expressive personality with ripe and savoury tannins.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Fresh red cherry and raspberry, then a little astringent with still-youthful chewy tannins in need of plenty of time. Likely a slow bloomer, but ought to develop splendidly.

Michael Garner

Tasting: Barolo 2009

New oak notes of nutmeg and butterscotch over ripe fruit aromas. Round and ripe with spicy-toned fruit flavours, with great length and depth. Firmly structured, this will develop further.
