Conterno Aldo on Snooth

  • Met up with Foxall last night in Oakland...We had a couple modest '04 Barolo at dinner. The Aldo Conterno was drinking very well, plenty of acid and tannin, with typcial bursts of dark nebbiolo fruit. Also found some mild cinnamon impressions and other spices, however did not find the oak cloying, even though Foxall gave some background on how t... Read More

  • I think OT had a thread in Berserkers all about pictures of vines and vineyards...tried to find one on here but came up short. There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines. Just now I noticed a nice picture of some Limerick Lane Vineyard rows posted to Facebook by Adam of Sid... Read More

  • That's good to hear Fox...2000 is the most accessible Barolo I've ever had (happened to be a Bartolo Mascarello in February 2014), so not surprising the Granbussia showed well. Also nice to share a great bottle like that with your SO. I was at a tasting yesterday with a bunch of friends, perhaps we had too many wines on the table, that a lot of ... Read More

  • Sandrone is modernist, so it's interesting to see what's happening to those.  The modernists probably made the wines more drinkable young by taming the tannins with oak, but at a cost of burying some of what makes Nebbiolo unique. (Here I am sounding like some cocksure expert--I'm not, but this is certainly how many, including Oz Clarke, saw it,... Read More

  • That Fenocchio would have been better on the second or third day, IMO.Funny, I just inventoried my meager holdings of Barolo.  I'm probably going to start cracking some '07s, a kind of young drinking vintage, and it's definitely time to open the Aldo Conterno GB from 2000.  I'd sit on the delle Rose quite a bit longer, frankly, although I think ...

  • WB has a thread on this, why not us?Cracked my first one over the weekend, a Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola. While Pelissero has a couple more highly esteemed Barbaresco (Tulin, of which I have a few, and Venotu, of which I hope to get some), I enjoyed this wine, and picked the right time to open it as it was accessible enough for the casu...

  • Okay, so I have been away, but I am really excited about those Fenocchio Bussia bottles.  That was our first visit on the trip in May, and neither Jamie nor GdP had been before.  I am pretty light on Barolo experience, so I kept wondering if I was an idiot for liking the wines so much.  After all, how could those guys have missed it on all their...

  • 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...
