1999 Poderi Aldo Conterno "Granbussia" Barolo Riserva

SKU #1119008 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is a great showing for Conterno's 1999 Barolo Riserva Granbussia. A deeply-flavored, structured wine, it offers expressive aromatics and layers of sweet black cherries, roses and tar in a powerful, intense style. It needs at least a few additional years of cellaring for the oak to soften, but it is a terrific effort. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Pure but reticent aromas of minerals and spices, with a deep woodsy sweetness. Then dense, lush and silky but youthfully backward. This powerfully minerally, spicy wine boasts fruit of steel. Finishes with big, broad, strong tannins and great length and grip. A classic Barolo in need of a good decade of additional cellaring. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2004)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Conterno's 1999 Barolo Riserva Granbussia is one of the more forward, accessible wines of the year. Worn-in leather, spices, tobacco, menthol and licorice are some of the notes that lift from the glass. Now that some of the baby fat is beginning to melt away, the tannins are becoming more incisive. The 1999 Granbussia is a pretty wine, but it is not built for the long haul. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2014)
