No doubt that Pietro nailed this vintage! It actually shows elegance which for 2009 is pretty rare. Won't last forever, nor will it add much more complexity but it's damn sexy already now.

Lots of fruit. Grilled meat and cinnamon spice. Huge and silky.

At a private tasting had this 2009 classic Barolo, was decanted it for about an hour. The Barolo was aged in Oak for 2 years in French oak! Deep rich Ruby with a grand bouquet of black fruit, blackberries, black cherries, leather, some cacao, tobacco and licorice with sweet spice and earthy notes, with elegance and finesse which will only get better. This wine has excellent structure and balance with polished silky tannins, was a delight to drink now, but what will another 10 years yield? Tasting Sample.

A Barolo relatively gentle but not without character. A lady Barolo, but still a Barolo.
