Manzone Giovanni

Paolo Basso

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Ripe blackcurrant, strawberry jam, anise. Intense and harmonious palate with savoury and compact structure, ripe and well-integrated tannins, and a long finish.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Sweet spices and flowers on the nose, then mineral and more austere but clean, fresh and still with persistent perfume.

Michael Garner

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Round, ripe and scented: note of strawberries. Concentrated fruit flavours though little development of yet. Rich, powerful and muscular palate that needs time to improve.
