Aldo Conterno Barolo Granbussia Riserva 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Full medium red. Reticent but highly nuanced nose combines hints of superripe red berries, minerals, truffle, mocha and tar. Rich, thick and velvety, with superb ripeness supported by underlying minerality. Wonderfully dense Barolo, at once round and solid. Very long, slow-mounting finish features big, broad, horizontal tannins. Giacomo told me that this wine 'kills' all the 2000s. (Nov/Dec 2004)
