The Acclivi 2009 reflects and emulates the peculiar terrain of the Verduno area, which has always produced wines of great balance and elegance. The wine is extremely pleasing when consumed young yet has the potential, when aged, to exhibit added refinement on the palate.

"Another gorgeous wine, the 2009 Barolo Acclivi is one of the more delicate wines here, its considerable depth notwithstanding. Freshly cut flowers, mint licorice and spices are backed up by serious weight, which is quite unusual for the Acclivi. As readers can tell from this note, the Acclivi is a wine of beautiful contrasts. Firm, dusty tannins frame an insistent, beautifully articulated finish. In 2009, the Acclivi impresses for so many things, most importantly a sense of balance that is elusive in this vintage. "
