Wine Advocate # 207. June 2013. Reviewer : Antonio Galloni - The 2009 Barolo shows broad shoulders and a fascinating bouquet woven together by tones of dried fruits and fig, polished river stone, light shadings of spice and licorice. Like many wines of the vintage the tannins are already smooth and silky at this young stage in the wine?s life. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022.
