Tasting Notes

WS98

A beautifully crafted Barolo, with ripe cherry, plum, leather, spice, mineral and smoke elements. Starts off supple and approachable, but the gripping tannins soon move in, securing the lengthy, spice-filled finish. An underlying mineral vein adds depth. Best from 2018 through 2036.

WE97

It opens with varietal aromas of leather, tilled earth, underbrush, truffle and berry. The intense palate delivers black cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon, clove and licorice alongside velvety, teeth-coating tannins and brisk acidity. Usually the most accessible of Conterno's single-vineyard Barolos, the 2010 is loaded with energy and destined for lengthy aging. Drink 2020–2040. Cellar Selection

The Winery

Poderi Aldo Conterno

"He existed in a special place between modernism and tradition. He wasn’t an outright revolutionary like Elio Altare or Domenico Clerico. He was a man of clear ideas and determination, and he was a beacon of light who shined on the path the rest of us would take."
- Enzo Brezza, a Barolo producer and president of Albeisa, an Italian winegrowers association

Aldo Conterno has been described as Piemonte's most talented winemaker, and his wines have frequently been ranked among the finest of the region, often with the emphasis on the balance. British wine publication Decanter rated Poderi Aldo Conterno among Italy's shortlist of Second Growths. The vineyards are now managed using organic methodology.

Though committed to the focus on production of Barolo, Conterno remained among the Piemonte producers who are devoted to producing quality Barbera.
