I tasted this wine in a lineup of Giacomo Conterno that spanned over three decades and it was the best drinking wine of the night. Don't get me wrong, the '89 was amazing, but not quite ready and the '96 and '01 obvisouly need time. However, the 1990 was firing on all cylinders. Enough to make me buy some the very next day. It's a beautiful bottle of wine that's worth every penny.

My top ten Barolo of all time
I taste a lot of Barolo and I figured it was time to list some of my highest scoring experiences. Some are hard to find gems, but there are also some surprisingly affordable and available bottles to be found here. I know there are a number of aged wines here that are very hard to come by, but If you take nothing else from this list, at least take my word that is it worth buying Barolo on release and cellaring it to maturity. it's one of the main reasons I started my own cellar.
