Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Barolo Colonnello is one of the darkest, richest wines I have ever tasted from Aldo Conterno. The explosive, textured Colonnello bursts from the glass with tons of dark fruit, violets, licorice and oak. A long, vibrant finish and the sheer depth of the fruit suggest that the Colonnello will require patience, despite the radiance of the year. This is a stellar effort from Aldo Conterno. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027...94"WA 02/2011 "What a nose with licorice, violets and berries. Dark berries. Full and racy, with fine linear tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful balance of fruit and character. Subtle and fascinating..97" JS 5/11

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
