Country: Italy, Piedmont
Tasting Notes: It opens with varietal aromas of leather, tilled earth, underbrush, truffle and berry. The intense palate delivers black cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon, clove and licorice alongside velvety, teeth-coating tannins and brisk acidity. Usually the most accessible of Conterno’s single-vineyard Barolos, the 2010 is loaded with energy and destined for lengthy aging.
Varietal: 100% Nebbiolo
