From one of the region’s most celebrated vineyards, the 2009 Barolo Brunate lavishes on smoky, granite and mineral notes that make this wine absolutely irresistible. Even the drawing of a snail on the label seems to hammer home one obvious point: This wine is built for longer cellar aging. Its rich texture, velvety feel and firm structure are guarantees that it will become increasingly elegant and finessed with time. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

A pretty red, offering delicate floral and red berry aromas, with tobacco and briar notes matched to an elegant frame. The firm tannins mesh well, giving this a balanced impression overall. Best from 2016 through 2027. 300 cases made. –BS
