Dark red garnet. Big, forward aromas, with deep and ripe fruit, hints of vanilla and wood, very forward & expressive in the nose, excellent black cherries and blackberries. On the palate, it possesses great balance, length and minerality, with complex balsamic notes, mountain herbs and spices, but shows some young and unevolved tannins, undoubtedly from the higher-altitude sites of Cerretta and Conterni. In the mouth, great fruit, intense tannins and good acidity - it is all there, requiring only patience to knit together. Long, dry finish; the tannins just need time. The expressive fruit of the 2009 vintage is front and center.

This is a stunning wine with intense floral scents of iris, violet and rose layered with hints of mint and coffee. The palate is rich and vibrant, with a core of black cherry wrapped in cinnamon and spice. This is superbly balanced, elegant and structured. Enjoyable now, this will also age well.

The 2009 Barolo Le Vigne shows class and pedigree with bright fruit tones carefully wrapped within the wine's elegant texture. The purity and the intensity of the wine are exceptional, especially when compared to other Barolos from this vintage. The bouquet is polished and long, with pristine accents of spice, licorice and anise seed. Made with fruit sourced from various parcels, this wine speaks with a strong and confident tone. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

Coffee, licorice, tar and spice flavors mingle in this rich, firmly structured red. A bit reticent, with a sweet core and dense, dusty tannins on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2030. 450 cases imported.
