92(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013

(from sand-rich soil and 55-year-old vines at an altitude reaching 400 meters; the highest in acidity of these 2009 Barolos):  Dark red.  Perfumed aromas of black cherry, licorice, flowers and mint.  A pure, floral midweight, with bright acidity giving the wine a penetrating quality and intensifying the middle palate.  Very tightly wound today, finishing with serious building tannins and superb cut.  Seems the least obviously ripe of these 2009s:  I might have picked this blind as a 2010.  But does it have the density and depth for a long life in bottle?
