Paolo Basso

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Delicate and typical nose of violet, red cherries and plums. Strong and straight structure, medium body, well-integrated, slightly dry tannins and medium to long finish.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Clean and precise. Lacks a little flesh to bolster the tannic backbone. Very clean, comes across as a little skeletal. Think Modigliani, rather than Rubens.

Michael Garner

Tasting: Barolo 2009

Ripe, sweet and sour nose with positive spicy notes. Balanced toasty oak. Full, round and ripe with attractive development of blue and black fruit flavours. Decent structure with a warm and spicy finish.
