Winemaker's Notes

Colonnello Barolo is a slightly deeper color, with a nose of tar, redcurrant and mint. It is silky in the mouth and finishes with ripe and even tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas of prune, dark chocolate, coffee and cream follow through to a full body, with masses of fruit and chewy tannins. This is concentrated and very structured. A big juicy wine."
97 Points

"Conterno's 2004 Barolo Colonnello reveals a core of ripe dark cherries and a beautifully layered, sweet personality with superb length and a refined, fresh finish. With air the wine's perfumed, spiced qualities emerge to complete this terrific effort. The Colonnello vineyard lies on the Monforte border with Barolo, with which it shares several attributes. A higher percentage of sand in Colonnello gives the wine its signature aromatics and refined tannins. This is an especially successful vintage for this wine."
94 Points

"Saturated deep red. Ineffably perfumed nose offers strawberry, underbrush, truffle, leather, tobacco and rose petal. Lusher and deeper than the basic bottling, with a sweet strawberry flavor, a seamless texture and lovely stuffing and breadth. This really spreads out to coat the mouth. The building finish offers excellent sap and vinosity."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
