"2009 Barolo Albarella. A powerful Barolo with a Gevrey-like wildness to it, the 2009 shows the darker, more brooding side of Nebbiolo in this vintage. Despite its considerable richness and heft, there is an approachability to the 2009 that is striking for such a young Barolo. My preference would be to drink the 2009 over the next decade or so. At the same time, there is an attractive vibrancy and freshness on the finish that suggests the 2009 will also age gracefully. In 2009, the Albarella is an overachiever, something that can happen with lesser sites in warmer years."
