Winemaker Notes

The Conterno wines have long set the standard for more traditional Barolo. With its brown-red color and its aromas of ripe strawberries and dark plums, this wine combines powerful dried fruits with modern tannins and great concentration. It is an enormous wine that will age well over 15 years or more.

Wine Spectator
Loads of plum, berry and licorice character with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, rich finish. Beauty here. Tight and compacted. Lots going on here. Give it time.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Fairly light color with amber at the rim. Open, sweet, rather attractive bouquet with notes of licorice, tar, spice, minerals, and tobacco. We also get hints of wild, exotic, and gamy scents. Equally attractive in the mouth, rich and concentrated with wonderful sweet cherry and red currant fruit. It’s a clean, medium-bodied wine that displays elegance and impeccable balance. There is still a lot of tannin to be resolved; this bottle would have benefitted from several more years in the cellar. Long, consistent finish. This wine kept getting better as it opened in the glass.

The story of Poderi Aldo Conterno, one of the elite, historic Barolo producers, is a tale of great passion for winemaking that winds back across generations and crosses international borders. While the Langhe Rosso, Chardonnay “Bussiador”, Barbera d’Alba “Conca Tre Pile” and Nebbiolo “Favot” represent a nod to modern winemaking techniques, the Barolo wines remain firmly in the traditionalist camp, aged in large Slavonian-oak botte before bottling. Only indigenous yeasts and traditional fermenting techniques are used. These are clean, polished and ethereal wines of great elegance that are guaranteed to offer years of sublime drinking while being terrific collector’s items.

Over the past decade, the estate has worked hard to ensure their place among the pantheon of hallowed Barolo producers, decreasing production by well over 50% through extreme triage in the vineyards: their harvest teams threatened mutiny at first over bunches that would normally have been harvested but that Conterno knew would be better to cut early to favor optimal development in the remaining bunches. The results of this rigorous approach have already been noticed and highly praised by the international press. The wines are remarkably approachable, characterized by particularly sweet fruit in their youth, as well as spice and vanilla notes. These are clean, polished and ethereal wines of great elegance that are guaranteed to offer years of sublime drinking while being terrific collector’s items. lity.
