    "The 2019 Barolo Cicala is classic Cicala. Bright acids and insistent tannins drive through a core of vibrant red-toned fruit, orange peel, anise, slate, chalk and white pepper. Brilliant and energetic, with tons of focus the Cicala is striking in 2019. I admire its chiseled, nervy personality. All the elements are so well balanced." 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." Antonio Galloni
