Giacomo Conterno Barolo 1994

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Hard, sour, and very earthy on the nose, this would seem to be fairly immature, though a hint of beefiness adding depth to the hibiscus-tinged cranberry and lingonberry-styled fruit shows that this is evolving. On the palate however one thing is not evolving, the hard, dry tannin that dominates the palate. There is a fair amount of chewy richness here and this has excellent weight and depth of fruit on the palate but there is no way that fruit will outlast these massive tannins. On the other hand the tannin adds length to the finish and some savory tones as well. 88pts
