Aldo Conterno Barolo Granbussia Riserva 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: Aldo Conterno has now succeeded... in producing another magisterial version of his iconic wine. Gran Bussia 2001... manages to express to the highest degree what Barolo is all about. Austere and elegant at the same time, it is intense and superlatively built, displaying incredible power supported by wonderful use of oak. A lively ruby in appearance, it gives floral and fruit essences, foregrounding subtle cinchona, vanilla and cocoa that developed over its lengthy, 36-month maturation in large botti. The tannins are glossy and dense; the conclusion of rarely matched power and length. (2008)
