#2009 RS in the form of caramel, dried fig, and plum showcase a sweeter side to Barolo while #2010 showcases more refined fruit flavors, improved acidity, and a lengthier finish

Warm raisin, plum, and fig aromas. Caramel colored hue carries a light orange undertone...#oxidized? Delicate tannin profile with mild acidity. My only critique is the absence of mid palate weight or texture, the wine feels slightly hollow.

Really nice complement to veal osso buco. Cherry, vanilla, tar and delicate earth notes. The palate is tart cherry and strawberry with forest floor and leather with some floral notes. Med tannins, med+ acid, medium finish. I like Barolo to be a tad grippier than this to complement the protein i chose tonight.

A tighter but deeper wine than the Barbaresco but with a deeper more serious core that has fresh tar, rose and serious cherry and red berry fruit, Palate has fine but firm tannins, dry at first but then with full on red berry fruit and wet tobacco leaf, needs further time in bottle.

Way too young, but had all the right components. Lay this one down for a few years.

Good fruit and strong tannins. Would love to taste in a few years. Very accessible and approachable for its youth.

Tons of fruit, I think if it opens up it will grab some spice.
