Barolo Aldo Conterno 2004 (91JS) (750ML)
91 WA 91 WS 90 IWC
"Aldo Conterno’s 2004 Barolo is simply beautiful. A medium red, it presents a feminine expression of Nebbiolo in its perfumed, spiced red raspberries and cherries. This is a soft, accessible Barolo ideal for near and mid-term drinking that fully captures the essence of this great vintage. Beginning with the 2004 vintage, this wine includes fruit from 15-year-old vines in Colonnello, a vineyard with sandier soils that lies on the border with Barolo. In the past this fruit was used for the Langhe Favot but now it makes up about 30% of the blend for the Barolo. As a result this bottling now carries the Barolo designation rather than the Barolo Bussia name which was used for previous vintages...91." WA 12/07 "Plum and spice aromas, with undertones of meat. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Needs time to mellowand come together. Very structured. From this vintage, 20 percent of the Nebbiolo grapes come from a vineyard in the Barolo commune, so this is no longer labeled Bussia Soprano. Best after 2011.—J.S... 91" WS 04/08
