Rosehip, forest berry and even a touch of stone fruit or apricot emerge at first, followed by heavier aromas of tar and black licorice. The wine shows impressive elegance, finesse, silky tannins and fresh acidity. Those overall attributes, melded so perfectly together, are rare to find in the warmer 2009 vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. - ML collapse

The concentrated palate shows dark cherry, white pepper, mint and menthol. It has a delicious creamy texture and big, brooding tannins. While this will evolve nicely for the next few years, it's a tad shy on acidity so don't lay it down for ages. collapse

Cooler, bluer aromas of blueberry, mint, camphor and licorice. Large-scaled, silky and plush on entry but quite backward on the back half. Major tannins dust the tongue and front teeth on the rather muscular finish. This soil gives different tannins from most other Serralunga vineyard, notes Massolino, but the Parussi is still a powerful, masculine style of Barolo.-ST collapse

Offers mouthcoating tannins that leave a strong grip on the finish. A tad dry in the balance, but otherwise solid. Best from 2017 through 2030. 400 cases made. — BS collapse

A soft and velvety wine with plums, hazelnut and dried mushroom character. Full body, with an attractive mouthfeel. Needs time to open and show what it really has. Balanced and attractive. Better in 2015.
