95 Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The 1967 Barolo Normale from Giovanni Conterno is a masterpiece. I once owned quite a bit of this wine and drank every bottle with great pleasure, but I have finished my cache up now and only cross paths with the wine when fortune smiles my way. After a bottle reported on back in December of last year that was good, but not one hundred percent pristine, I was very, very happy to drink from another perfect example of this magical wine. This most recent bottle was another absolutely stellar showing for the wine, soaring from the glass in a beautiful mélange of black cherries, game, white truffles, orange rind, glorious autumnal soil tones, woodsmoke, leather, a bit of road tar and a pungent topnote of roses and violets. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bdoied, pure and absolutely complete, with a sappy core of fruit, great soil inflection, melting tannins and a long, complex and tangy finish. Just a glorious bottle of Conterno Barolo. (Drink between 2014-2035)." #52, 7/14.
