Barolo Romirasco Aldo Conterno 96 Ag 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Barolo Romirasco stands out for its pure texture and balance. Today the 2010 is a bit compact, but that is not at all surprising given its underlying structure and very recent bottling. Those two factors considered, the 2010 Romirasco is a wine with tremendous future. The style is a little more sensual and less severe than the Cicala, with generally softer contours, all which should give it a slight upper hand in terms of accessibility...96+" AG 01/14

Super floral on the nose with intense perfumes of Middle Eastern spices, green spices, and turmeric. Smooth, polished and elegant on entry this exhibits lots of depth on the palate with good clarity even if this is a little chewy. The wild cherry fruit on the palate is intense without being frooty, carrying with it a lovely astringent edge. The fruit here definitely has wild candy notes with an innate sweetness one the palate, but it is also quite seamless with tannins that float away on the finish. This shows more heat than the previous two wines, though it also finishes with more savory and mineral accents to the small astringent red fruits that show fine persistence, though in the end one does find a little bubble gum fruitiness. People are going to love this. It’s structured and fruity! 93pts

Early on this is noticeably oaky, then it turns a bit hard with floral and spiced dark cherry fruit. Clean, precise and modern, this is a bit beefy at first, smooth and broad on the palate. This shows a little hollow on the palate, there's nice fruit, explosively pure and slight candied and medicinal wild cherry fruit that is sure to please many palates, but the structure is taking control here and this is very structured for the vintage. There is no doubt huge fruit here with added complexity from notes of herb, leather, and violets , but the wine shows a weird blend of super fruity fruit and classic structure. This is a super fresh fruit bomb. I don’t know how to score this, objectively it’s a 93pt wine though if there ever was a case of a wine having too much fruit this would be one of them, but it is delicious fruit. Blind I might guess this is a new world wine.

Bright red-ruby. Cassis blackberry violet and sweet oak on the nose. Sweet juicy and imploded with terrific verve to the urgent flavors of dark berries and bitter chocolate. Elegant penetrating and strong with the cut and verve to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. Finishes with oustanding lift. "For us the best time to drink wines is between 10 and 15 years after the vintage whether Barolo Burgundy or even Champagne " noted Giacomo Conterno. "At that stage they have

Very deep ruby. Very concentrated and oak driven. The nose almost looks like Cicala blended with Colonnello. Lots of succulent fruit followed by a minerally but restrained finish. Still a little bit unsettled on the finish. Very long and perfumed. 17.5/20 (WS) Jancis Robinson.

The 2008 Barolo Romirasco is striking. It possesses a cool mineral-drenched personality similar to the Cicala but with an extra dimension of textural finesse. Sweet red berries flowers mint and crushed rocks are woven together in this exquisite gorgeous Barolo. Powerful and authoritative the Romirasco impresses for its depth and unmistakable pedigree. Today the 2008 is an infant but great things are in store for those who can wait. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. - Antonio Galloni Rob
