An unexpected treat, '09 just a touch ripe but it's delicious Nebbiolo and that's always good!

Touch of modern but with a traditional edge. Very nice both now and into the future.

Good Barolo for early-mid term consumption. Softer style, gently tannic and with a lot of red licorice, maraschino cherry type fruit--

Shows so much potential, but this 2009 just isn't showing that pretty fruit just yet.

Decanted, still young, a good match to the rich lamb shoulder ragu.
