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 Bricco Bussia Vigna Colonnello 1980


    A distinctive and gorgeous nose that brings together a bit of pink peppercorn spice with earth, licorice, dried herbs and angelica root fills the glass. Tis is the only wine that shows a bit of extra-ripeness to it with an early suggestion of raisin on the palate. The texture also shows in a armer style with a roundness and softness that the oth...

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 1989


    A bit of celery and bouillon is obvious on the nose, though there remains some lovely complexity with fine aromas of wood smoke, black tea, and dried rose petals slowly filling the glass along with a nice limestoney edge. Theres not much fruit left here, what remains is rather rough and rustic with lots of black spice and licorice flavors. This ... Read More

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Nebbiolo Barolo Cicala 1989


    Intensely aromatic with deep herbal accents to the core of spicy and dark fruit. There were notes of cocoa and brownies, along with some grilled beefy notes all supporting a core of jammy raspberry fruit that grew with air. Big red fruits greet the palate, which quickly gains focus offering up crisp cranberry and raspberry flavors that gained mi... Read More

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Nebbiolo Barolo Cicala 2001


    Waxy, oaky and nutty on the nose with a very spicy dark chocolate, coffee aroma lifted with a touch of VA. Nice edgy red cherry fruit on entry, framed with wood spice then wood tannin throws this a touch out of balance, particularly on the long sweet oaky finish. Lots of jammy blackberry fruit with hint of mineral a bit muddy but pleasant overa... Read More

  • Barolo Riserva Granbussia. Poderi Aldo Conterno 2005


    Tight, muscular and angular on the mineral laced nose that shows excellent perfumes of rosehips, orange rind, dried flowers with a hint of iron and spice. This is gorgeous with excellent integration in the mouth. Just lovely with wide open fruit that shows a lightly burnished edge, with a light sweetness to the fruit but this is layered with s...

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Nebbiolo Barolo Cicala 2009


    Deep and rich on the nose with intense fruit, mineral and floral aromas that are a little wild, a little sauvage with salumi and cocoa accents, topped by slightly medicinal and minty accents. Cool and compact on the palate, this has both richness and edginess with a lovey hint of sweetness to the wild cherry fruit on the palate. Here are some s... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 2009


    Rather perfumed and frankly fruity on the nose with a touch of carob and anise seed accenting rose petal flecked sour cherry and pomegranate fruit,all gaining a hint of white pepper and dusty white soil tones with air. Very smooth in the mouth with good acids and ripe tannins creating a wine that is both a bit dense and relaxed in the mouth with... Read More

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Case of 6 Bottles 2009


    Wow wild cherry, menthol, rose petal, a touch of exotic fruit, pomegranate maybe with a hint of India ink all greet the nose with power and clarity. In the mouth this is pretty easy going with lots of pretty fresh yet simple if juicy, red fruits. Theres a nice tannic finish here with tons of licorice flavors and this is awfully well behaved, ho... Read More

    Wine review by Barberolo

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 1999


    The nose was dark and seductive with cherry tobacco, plum, dusty potpourri a hint of musk and medicinal herbs. On the palate, it was velvety and perfectly balanced with masses of fruit. Sour cherry sauce and a hint of cedar filled the senses and warded off the silky tannins that were still present but not out front. On the finish, the fruit turn... Read More
