Cellar/Tasting Notes "Dense, bold and beautiful, with notes of plush cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, cola and dried rosemary. Polished, with a dusty, silky feel to the long finish."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2009 Barolo (aged three years in botte grande and one year in bottle) opens with a crystalline, ruby color and shows extreme focus and precision.

A more muscular style..

At once sweet and serious, with highly concentrated flavors of currant, minerals and camphor. A more muscular style than Altare's Barolos from La Morra (this is Serralunga, after all!) but wonderfully..
