The tannins are still beating down the fruit at this stage. Beautiful aromatics, stuffing for the long haul but not ready now. Hold.

More masculine, by far than the Gavarini Chiniera. Dense, savory, intense.

Waited 2 hours and tasted.tight. 2 more hours opened up but still quite tannic but delicious cherry tobacco. Some tar. Nice. Somewhat complex but felt needed more time but delicious as is.

Weak and insipid body, but seema like 2009 was a weak vintage for Barolo in general

Darker and more virile than the 2007 enjoyed 2 months ago. Tannins also more bitter. Sour cherry Grasso signature and good overall roundness. Needs at least a few more years in the cellar.
