User Reviews for Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello

Winemaker's Notes:

"The nose is amazing with roses and minerals, and dark fruits. Also hints of bark and mushrooms. Full-bodied, with super fine tannins and a long tangy finish with polished tannins. Persistent and beautiful. Better in four or five years, but gorgeous now...96" JamesSuckling.com 07/12 "This is round and supple, with a fleshy profile enveloping pure cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. Ripe and harmonious, with no shortage of structure. A mineral element emerges on the tight finish. Best from 2016 through 2035...96" WS 12/12 "The 2008 Barolo Colonnello is impressive. It shows gorgeous richness and depth in its focused, energetic fruit. Sweet red berries, flowers and spices are woven together beautifully in the 2008 Colonnello. The elegant side of Barolo comes through, but with an extra degree of muscle. The oak, sometimes noticeable in this bottling, is very well-integrated. Floral notes are woven throughout the finish. The Colonnello often gives the impression of being early to mature relative to the estate’s other Baroli, but the 2008 is surprisingly powerful and structured. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033...95" WA 4/2012
