Conterno Aldo Barolo Granbussia Riserva 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

95+ points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Deep, full red. Great subtly sweet aromas of redcurrant, plum, spice cake, minerals, dried fruits and marzipan; a wine of compelling perfume. Extremely tightly wound and vigorous, with great sappy verve and powerful framing acidity. Fruit flavors are lifted by an exotic suggestion of orange peel. Very youthful and long, finishing with great thrust and buns of steel. A tightly coiled wine with a long future, perfectly representative of this great vintage. 'This will last 30 years without any problem,' promises Aldo. (Nov 2002)
