Poderi Aldo Conterno Nebbiolo Barolo Cicala 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pretty burnished red fruits on the nose over a bed of lightly minty, sandy soil tones. With air this turns decidedly fruity with classic wild cherry and rosehip notes. Bright in the mouth with fine acids and well managed tannins giving this fine balance. The mid-palate is full of savory, burnished black cherry fruit that is clean and bright with ripeness and good density that gains a gentle mineral tone on the long finish. This really develops a rich, powerful yet deftly balanced feel in the mouth with air. 93pts

Classy aromas of wild berries, smoke and dried herbs are appealing. Medium to full in body, with a clean, rather crisp frame, it has a enough concentration of ripe and rich fruit to suggest cellaring for extra complexity. The mineral, soillike taste ... Melbourne Age. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1995 Conterno, Aldo Barolo Vigna Cicala 750ml
