The 2009 Barolo presents with a garnet red color. The wine is typical, ethereal, exhibits notes of red fruit jam, aromatic herbs and toast. Dry, medium structure, supple, low acidity, evident tannins, good persistence.

"The 2009 Barolo shows the powerful side of the vintage with a brooding, dark color and lively aromas of cassis, forest fruit, anise, fennel, licorice and tar. A dark, inky appearance is followed by smooth richness and long lasting flavors of black fruit and spice."
Antonio Galloni- Vinous (AG): 91
"Grasso's 2009 Barolo is a fabulous introductory-level wine. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, cinnamon and cloves meld together nicely in the glass. Juicy and expressive, the 2009 captures the very best qualities of the year in a soft, supple style that is impossible not to love. Readers looking for a delicious Barolo that can be enjoyed upon release and that won't break the bank should start here. This is an impressive showing from Grasso."
