2007 Aldo Conterno Barolo

SKU #1140701 93 points Wine Spectator

 Rich and saturated with cherry, raspberry, licorice and tar notes, this red is concentrated and intense. Remains elegant and focused on the grip-filled finish. Best from 2015 through 2028. (BS)  (4/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The next Granbussia is the 2005, which will be released in 2012. Conterno's 2007 Barolo impresses for its sense of harmony and freshness. The wine has firmed up nicely since I first tasted it in November 2010, boding well for its development in the cellar. In 2007 the Barolo possesses an extra degree of richness and generosity than is typically the case, never a bad thing for an entry-level bottling. In a few years, the soft, supple fruit should be at the height of its expression. This is a jewel of a wine and a huge outperformer in relative terms. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (AG) 92+  (2/2011)

91 points James Suckling

 Lovely tannins to this wine, with a plum and chocolate character and hints of nuts. Full, yet balanced and silky. Very delicate. So delicious now, but best in three or four years.  (5/2011)
