Young but showing everything you want in a classic elegant style. Tar, roses, spice form tannins and bright acidity. Really great!

Tar and roses fix. Bliss on day 6 of 7 consecutive days crushing.

I was told that this growers 2009's were drinking more open than most but after two days, the wine is still very intense. Day one: floral, iron with a darkness that holds the tannin well. Dat two: olives and spice with extreme tannin. Many 2009 Baroli seemed to tease an openness that might now be shutting down.

Took about 1.5 hours to open up, but then it was singing. #pizzasunday

11 drinking good - bit more animalistic and less liquorish than castellero for the moment

I wish it had more tannins... Beautiful elegant but from a 2008 Riserva a was hoping to experience an extra kick.
