Editorial Reviews for Giacomo Conterno Barolo
This is textbook Barolo, a nose redolent of limestone, antiseptic medicinal tones, cherries in alcohol, a touch of angelica root, and subtle insinuation of herb in a very focused and driven aromatic display. On the palate this is superbly precise with abundant tannins that are so finely textured they are already showing signs of a textural silkiness. The fruit here is extremely fresh with notes of strawberry and cherry all driven by the superbly vibrant acidity. This is exquisitely balanced and already shows uncommon elegance for a Barolo of this size. It’s another legend in the making, combining power with a certain transparency and weightlessness. Having said all of that, this remains a wine of potential that will need another 5-8 years to fully reveal itself. 96pts
Floral nose with roses up front, followed by cherry with beef broth, tar. The palate showed lots of cherry fruit, pipe tobacco and earth but all kept in check by a fine structure with streamlined acidity. I can see this wine being a classic as it leaves you lusting to taste it in a more mature state. The finish is refined and reminiscent of the roses on the nose. My number two of the evening, God what a gorgeous Barolo.
Dark ruby red in color. Subtle and reserved on the nose, with blackberry, tea, sandalwood and blueberry. Opens to coffee and vanilla bean. Full-bodied, with an amazing, condensed palate of ultra-ripe fruit and silky tannins. Fresh and superlong. Very tight and fresh. Needs so much time to open and come around.
