Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cerretta 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit smoky on the nose and with a hint of vanilla and lots of plums and red fruit over nuanced prosciutto, blueberry, lingonberry, and herbal background notes. After the rather spicy nose this shows lots of powerful, rich earthy, cherry fruit on the palate. the tannins are quite obvious, vying with the sweet fruit for one’s attention on the palate. The edgy powerful tannins win out on the long, little nutty slightly dry finish. A fabulous wine with more obvious stuffing and less nuance and focus than one finds in the Cascina francia. Roberto explained that the vanilla note seems to be a part of the terroir of the Cerretta cru. 93pts
