Conterno Fantino Barolo 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2001 Barolo Parussi opens with an elegant, Burgundian nose of sweet fruit, flowers, minerals and underbrush. This mid-weight Barolo shows Pinot Noir-like bright red and black cherry fruit with notes of menthol and toasted oak. A wine of great finesse, the Parussi is the most delicate of this producer's three Barolos. Sadly 2001 is the last vintage for this wine, as the estate was not able to renew its lease for the vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016. (Oct 2006)

Conterno Fantino:
The making of high quality vine begin with the grapes. The work carried out in the vineyard ends with the harvest, and the winery takes over.
