which had a more candied profile on the nose with light cherry notes, hot rocks, roast, caramelized veal bones, a hint of maderization which clears up, some eucalyptus which gains strength but is off putting to some, some dried violet and rose enter the picture as well as some green anise seed. Lovely bottle sweetness up front leads to a hint of maderization, good acidity, the palate is a touch muted with light sour cherry fruit and an almost vanillin like candy note, very round and integrated mouthfeel with a medium length finish. Very solid showing

This opens languidly with soil driven tones, light mint notes and some truffle notes all wrapped in a thin gauze of sweet maderization. With airing the wine opens to reveal a lightly candied note to the onion powder and dried vegetable tones. Fairly resolved in the mouth but well aging well with just a whisper of fruit left highlighted by the citrussy acidity. Offers layers of evolved flavors but at the very end of it's drinking window.

Conterno's 1964 Barolo presents an incredibly fresh, delicate and perfumed nose that continues seamlessly onto the palate, showing flavors of cherries and spices, and finishing with very sweet, soft tannins. I am at a loss to explain or describe this... Robert Parker. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1964 Conterno, Giacomo Barolo 750ml

Coming from a powerful vintage, this wine has not lost a step with the passage of time. Still strapping if a touch less elegant than other vintages this wine continues to exhibit exceptional depth in a rugged, traditional style.
