Aldo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Conca Tre Pile 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Two and a half weeks of skin contact, two to three and a half of fermentation, then into barrique, 100% new, 14 months in barrique Pretty fresh on the nose showing some oak though more fruit than oak. This smells fresh a touch woodsy and medicinally icy with a spicy vanilla overlay and some VA shoe polish over black plum fruit. Bright and fresh in the mouth with black and blue plum fruits laid out over vanilla laced base. The wood is obvious on the palate but this really is nicely done, a bit modern but the right weight and balance, zesty and richly fruited, with wood tannins popping a touch on the backend but fading away in balance with the fruit on the finish. A bit simple but very vinous. 88pts
