2015 Barolo Colonnello, Aldo Conterno, Piedmont

Generous red fruit nose, floral and raspberry, with lots going on. The palate is finely judged, with lovely, silky and saline tannins, and good energy. Vibrancy and finesse in spades here. This is surprisingly approachable today.

2015 Barolo Colonnello, 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.
