Evolving faster than one would hope. Nose was fantastic with med + intensity and clear notes of rose, truffle, crushed stones, ripe black and blue fruit, and an exotic zing. Firm tannins, low acid, and high abv lead to an off balance palate. Complexity lacked with all notes muted. Medium finish. I am a little puzzled and don't know if this wine will come together with age and extended decant or not...?

I love the way '09 opens doors that would ordinarily be shut. Beautiful, dusty ripe tannins, sour cherry, roses and fennel & balanced acidity. At the very beginning of its drinking window.

Tight, with tannin for days. Not surprising, given the vintage. Hold for 15 years.

Twas ok- had higher hopes, but it was on the decline. Hubby enjoyed it more than I.

Gorgeously tight smoke, tar, and wet earth scented with leaves and flowers.

This a leaner style of Barolo. Somewhat tightly wound, but it opens with time. Tannic and age-worthy, but I doubt fruit notes will last much longer. Plenty of tertiary notes here of tar and cedar.
