Barolo 2009

A Bumpy Road Indeed


I wrote yesterday about the 2009 vintage in Barolo and today I begin reporting on the wines tasted. with over 30 winery visits o the region last month there's a lot of wine to report on. I've included my notes below, broken down by visit in roughly chronological order. As you can see not everyone was able to present the 2009 Barolo for each of their vineyards, and several producers also poured prior vintages for comparisons sake.

In addition to the tasting notes you'll find some information, where available, for each wine or vineyard. As each visit does not follow a set plan, and conversations drift off topic with some frequency, there is no rhyme nor reason for these tidbits of information. I've included them because I believe that they add some valuable information which should help readers better understand each wine. i hope you find them useful! I'll be following up with the second half of this report later this week with additional articles on barbera, Dolcetto, and Barbaresco coming out soon after.

    I would definitely second that emotion that Brovia & Elvio Cogno are unheralded stars of Barolo. I only wish they would stay that way so as to remain reasonably priced for those of us who do not run hedge funds...
