Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Bricco Gattera 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Cedary, spicy, and floral on the nose with rose notes and incipient aromas of tobacco, Round and rather rich in the mouth with dark, almost meaty cherry fruit framed by nice spice notes and a touch of camphor and tobacco. There are plenty of tannins and good acidity here though a little too much oak with some wood tannin obvious on the palate but this has some very attractive fruit with incipient tobacco and macerated floral notes. 90pts

This is quite aromatic with notes of menthol, blackberry jam, ash and chalk on the nose. Light-bodied on entry with a bit of woody bitterness early on, then turning fresh and juicy with black cherry fruit on the palate. A fruity style that lacks the weight of previous vintages, but the fruit is quite fragrant, clear and long with a lovely interplay of black raspberry and herb on the finish. Not my style but very successful in this paradigm. 91pts
