2015 Barolo Romirasco, Poderi Aldo Conterno, Piedmont

This comes from a 3.8ha plot, with vines planted in 1937, with others in the 1950s and 1960s. Lovely floral energy, more grapefruit than the other wines here, and lovely juicy berries. Very serious palate, notes of cumin and tamarind. And lovely density on the finish, which persists.

2015 Barolo Romirasco, Poderi Aldo Conterno, Piedmont
Poderi Aldo Conterno

The history of this winemaking family dates to at least 1770. Brothers Aldo and Giovanni Conterno continued to work the family land until 1969, when they agreed to split their holdings. Aldo took on their vines in the Bussia area, and with it, the freedom to produce wines in his own style. His three grown sons Stefano, Franco and Giacomo carry on the tradition. Their wines, where selection begins in the vineyard and vines reach over seventy years of age, offer astonishing complexity.
