Poderi Aldo Conterno Nebbiolo Barolo Cicala 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points James Suckling: This is stunning, with licorice, flowers and dark fruits all over. Full and super silky and sexy. I am in love with this wine already. It will age for decades, but it is so in harmony and beautiful now. Gorgeous. (5/9/11)

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

The 2007 Barolo Cicala is every bit as compelling as the Colonello, although it is completely different in its personality. Here the poor soils yield a massively tannic Barolo infused with minerals, violets, menthol, tar and new leather. While the Co... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Scented with black cherry and plum, this international-style red shows plenty of smoky, toasty oak on the palate. It's rich, with sweet fruit, ample power and complexity, but will take some time to integrate the tannins. Best from 2016 through 2035.-... Wine Spectator.

Quite dense dark ruby. Precise but rich nose of dark fruit and new oak and with a herbal almost tobacco-like note. Real crunch and fruit and with a pretty note of oak. Grainy and powerful tannin and perfectly balancing acidity. Very easy to enjoy but with tannic boldness. 17/20 (WS) Jancis Robinson.
