I’ve opened many a infantile Barolo and enjoyed it, but this one is joyless. All iron fist at this time. ....tasted again second day and it was singing! Bodes well for more time in the bottle.

This is a lovely bottle. Clear and persistent fruit, deep and clear with lovely length.

Faded rose and soft pretty fruit then a dried woodiness and maple syrup (without the sweetness). Ok

Some nights call for young Barolo // orange-rimmed garnet, lush red fruit on the palate (cherry and strawberry, both dessicated and near-ripe) / floral, aromatic; licorice with gravel in the background / ripe qualities continue through the palate supported by early and ongoing acid. . . Great length; refined but persistent tannins. // Totally satisfying

Monthly wine group met up and had an Italian wine night at one of the local Italian BYOB spots. Really fantastic Italian wines were brought, as well as some random bottles that were outside the theme (but worthy of opening regardless of theme).

Awesome Barolo brought by
@Colby Siratt . This didn’t get the benefit of a long decant like the others, but it still tasted great. Bouquet on this was gorgeous...raspberries, roses, espresso. Bing cherry, leather and herbs round out the palate. This will improve over the next few years.

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.
