Paolo Basso

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Oaked, spiced aromas: vanilla, liquorice, goudron. Rich, savoury, round and supple, hot character. Sweet ripe tannins and a pretty long finish.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Fresh and rich on entry, then smooth and balanced. Very pure red fruit and polished if still chewy tannins. Needs time.

Michael Garner

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Ripe, almost raisiny fruit aromas, some wood touch of sulphur. Full and round but lacks depth of fruit; drying finish.
