2009 Barolo from Piedmont
The 2009 Bricco Gattera of Cordero di Montezemolo exhibits a garnet-tinted deep red colour. This Barolo releases intense and ripped aromas of violet, raspberry, and alcohol cherry with hints of liquorice. The 2009 Bricco Gattera of Cordero di Montezemolo is supple on the palate and offers a remarkable delicate structure, persistent tannins, but also an exceptional ageing potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Barolo Bricco Gattera shows slightly more heft and density, but only by a hair. You do get elegance and a somewhat reticent bouquet with dried wild berries, cassis, leather, cola and mahogany. What I like most about the wine is that it shows the rich background matter that stands up to the firm tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.
