2009 vintage. Strawberry cordial, blood, hibiscus, aspirin, cinnamon sticks. Tremendous acid. This wine goes on for days.

"earthy, truffled aromas marry to a full-bodied, occasionally rustic character backed by rugged, classic tannins. "

Most of the usual Barolo descriptors apply. But the balance, the tension, the generosity...so lovely to experience, even this young.

2009 vintage made in a style more reminiscent of a colder year. Definitely picked at the right moment.

This has come together remarkably since it's release.

Dear Maker - I a small humble creature dwelling on Earth, nothing more than a bulb of mass really; a skin coated sack of meat... and I get to drink wine this good? Really??

Barolo DOCG 2009, 14.5%. Bottle tasted in October 2014. "Piè Franco" gapes from a pre-phylloxera vineyard.
Typical Nebbiolo color, but unusual nose: very balsamic, conifers, camphor, mint, pine tree....
Then it opens up and reveals red fruits and a bit of confectionery.
In the mouth the tannins are still immature, but it shows good potential. Very clean, but need more refining time.
