Conterno Aldo on Snooth

  • I'm kind of glad this one came back to life as I was checking in for the first time in a while.  I've learned a lot more on the barrel front during my travels. Especially in Piedmont, where barrels (botte v. barrique, to be more precise) occupy a lot of mental and emotional real estate.  Most of the traditionalists won't put their Barolo in new ...

  • Fox, I have a 2000 Aldo Conterno too!  Oops, no, 1999 and just Bussia.  It'll be here when you and the fam visit well after the renos!EMark, sounds sublime.  Your whole day I mean.  I like Saint Saens, Gabby Faure and Debussey too.  But I think I'd need a Cote Rotie to go with (I'd say Burgundy, but you know Greg and I....).Were you sitting on t...

  • Sorry, I was counting producers, 6 of whom were Cali.  I counted Lanessan as one.If you stick to what you know, K&L has good pricing at times.  I think the prices on Spanish wines are fair enough.  In general, I've tried to not buy into anyones's hype, BPW, Garagiste, etc.  I know they have to move product and it's easy to sway people, but, sinc...

  • Had a curry chicken thing for dinner and a Burrowing Owl (same as last night , but a 2009, darn good) followed by Chester's pick from my fridge, a 2000 Prunotto Barolo.  He could have chosen an older Aldo Conterno, but was merciful.  A nice evening! Read More

    Forum post in the topic Your fave Cab under $20?!


  • I should add that GregT (too modest to say it himself) is one of the foremost authorities anywhere on Spansih wine.  His dirty secret is that he was part of a Spanish wine importer and knows first hand how hard it is.  Frankly, if you can steal a couple upper end brands from a high margin area, say, Aldo Conterno from Barolo, or Vieux Telegraphe...

    Forum post in the topic importing Spanish Wine


  • As the wine industry grows, more and more people are drinking wine.  I have found that Spanish Wines are very few if any at most Wine Shops.  I have an opportunity to buy directly from the Vineyard but am a bit cautious with all the varieties of wine nowadays.  How will I separate myself from the thousands of other wine brands and countries?  An...

  • JD, that Burlotto Monvigliero is a gorgeous wine, one of the best on the trip.  If you get a line on it, let me know. D, Jamie's pricing at Chambers is really fair.  But, against all odds, we didn't drink any of those wines.  We skipped Aldo Conterno, Damilano, and pretty much everything on there.  You posted another list with Capellano and mayb...

  • If in the States right now I'd definitely be buying off this list. Really do like Chambers Street. How many of these were you drinking over in Italy, Fox?The non-Italians are mouth-watering, too. More Cellar Search ResultsWe've finished inventory and have turned up some more interesting bottles - at interesting prices.Click to view up-to-date in...

  • JD: Had to revisit this thread because yesterday at the end of work hours I held a very informal tasting for my coworkers who have heard me talking on and on about my upcoming trip to Piemonte.  So our theme was Piedmontese wines of course.  Since these are not regular wine drinkers, but of course they are familiar with Moscato, we started with ...
