    Barolo Bussia "Colonnello" 2019 - Aldo Conterno

    Tax included

    "The 2019 Barolo Colonnello from Aldo Conterno is a dark, somber wine. Black cherry, plum, mocha, spice, leather, gravel and a kiss of French oak add to an impression of gravitas. The 2019 possesses a deep core of fruit and the structure to match. Today, it is a bit imposing. A few years in bottle should do the trick." Antonio Galloni


    The 2019s are the finest wines I have tasted from Poderi Aldo Conterno in a long time. When Aldo Conterno passed away in 2012 he left the winery to his three sons, Giacomo, Franco and Stefano. In the ensuing years, my impression was often that the winery lacked clear direction. Numerous decisions were taken with the goal of improving quality, but those choices did not always show in the wines. They sure do in the 2019s. The four Barolos I tasted are all super-expressive and nuanced, with tons of character. As always, the Aldo Conterno wines have a bit more mid-palate richness than most super-classic Barolos and also a discreet touch of framing new oak. In 2019, the wines are impeccably balanced and beautifully done.
