A very complete and long aging wine from a great vineyard of Serralunga d’Alba. The colour is intense ruby red. The smell is intense, pleasant, balanced and spicy with a bouquet of plums, cedar, tobacco, liquorice, soy and floral notes. The taste is full bodied, concentrated and rich, with a firm tannic structure that classic Barolo need for a long ageing .
Wine Advocate 93 points - My money is on the 2009 Barolo Ca’ Mia for the longest aging potential of the bunch. The intensity and richness is bountiful, and seductive aromatic layers of dried fruit, licorice, tar, button mushroom and tobacco lift off the glass with building intensity. The wine’s texture is firmer and the length is decisively more rewarding. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. (Jun 2013)
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - This classically styled Barolo has hallmark Nebbiolo scents of rose, violet, spice, leather and forest floor. The creamy palate delivers wild cherry flavors, layered with spice, mint, licorice and eucalyptus notes. It’s well balanced, fresh and structured. While it’s already enjoyable, drink it after 2018 for more complexity. (Sep 2013)
