I mean, I sit with this wine for the 10th sip and still I think, it is too matured, too old, it has no structure anymore.
I bought the same vintage twice, I didn't wanna believe.
No apparent defects, but the color is pale, try to smell anything on the nose and you'll come short and the mouthfeel? Well...any Sangiovese beats it.
I am sure, it is just bad luck, but I can only suggest to stay away from the 2009 vintage

Lovely, vibrant, long, complex, and austere. Have always loved this (sadly underrated) producer.

Light and flat, respectively speaking with the 2006 and 2004 vintages. But still very good.

Crushed cherries, new leather, lemon. Elegant barolo - nothing newfangled here. Structured and reserved on the palate. More perfumed, with a funky note, as it opens up. Points for being unapologetically traditional. Bottle #1 from Nate for my 50th.

Although a great year all around for Barolo... It holds a good balance of nice acidity and firm tannic structure... Really needed time to open up. Good value but didn't blow me away...
