Cherry fruit, leather and tar. Richness and tannin. Acid a bit less than expected.

This bottle was a bit closed, and seemed like it would re-emerge in a year or so. Also drank the 2012 the same night, which was much more fun.

Tasted via Coravin as part of Capital Grille's by the glass program. Bright, plenty of energy, red fruits and minerals. Sustains on the palate, decent complexity. Good acidity makes it food friendly.

Delicious young barolo, very vivid rose, tar cherry and menthol nose, caramel touches now on day 2, ripe but with enough acidity, plenty of tannin and flowers on palate. Developing slight meaty aroma, long and flavorful. Well-made in a tough year! 2009 Vintage.

Tasted from cask at Cavallotto. Nose smells a bit unfinished, but deep with dark fruit and a bit of funk. Smooth with quite strong but relatively well integrated tannins, excellent acid, and a long finish. Would love to try in 5-10 years.
