2015 Barolo Cicala, Poderi Aldo Conterno, Piedmont

This is more about power, with Serravalian soil. Just 6000 bottles made from 3.2ha, showing the level of selection here. Fresh black olives and tapenade, and dark cherry. Really dense and complex, and the tannins are totally different, this is tightly wound with impressive texture. Really intense and pure fruit, and a hint of that citrus, blood orange character.

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.
