Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bricco Bussia Colonnelo 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This was popped and poured. Subtle nose wich opened with time to reveal a little dried rose over sweet cherry fruit. In the mouth there is good structure for an 85 but the wine softens fairly quickly and while exhibiting goo levels of fresh fruit doesn't offer that much in the way of complexity or depth. Lovely texture, fresh and mature, this is an elegant Barolo drinking close to peak.

Aldo Conterno is known as the “King of Barolo” in Italy. Poderi Aldo Conterno is situated in Monforte d'Alba on the prized Bussia Soprano vineyard, in the heart of the Barolo region. The Conterno family has been producing and aging the great Piemontese wines for more than five generations. Aldo left his legendary brother at his father's cellar (the Giacomo Conterno estate) in 1969 to pursue his own winemaking interests and reputation, creating the wines of Poderi Aldo Conterno in the "Favot" cellar. The estate exclusively vinifies its own 25 hectacres of grapes. The Conterno brothers parted ways back in the late sixties to create their own styles of Barolo, Giovanni producing the more traditional style of the two. However, Aldo's wines are not considered modern; he still refuses to age them in small barriques. The wines are more fruit driven than the earthy wines of the Giacomo Conterno estate across town in Monforte. Aldo Conterno’s corporate policy of producing only the highest quality wines while mixing tradition with innovation. Read less

A distinctive and gorgeous nose that brings together a bit of pink peppercorn spice with earth, licorice, dried herbs and angelica root fills the glass. Tis is the only wine that shows a bit of extra-ripeness to it with an early suggestion of raisin on the palate. The texture also shows in a armer style with a roundness and softness that the other wines of this vintage mostly lack. Fairly fruit, if a bit short and simple, this is a bit of a sandy, mineral laced wines that is at a good place in its life but just misses the mark. 88pts
