2011 Paolo Conterno "Riva del Bric" Barolo

SKU #1259918 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is fabulous Barolo with burnt orange, blackberry, meat, earth, and fresh herb. Full-bodied, round and velvety. So flavorful and crazy. Drink now. Why wait? But it will age wonderfully. Inner quote mark (9/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A fluid, spicy version, with cherry, strawberry, licorice, black pepper and cumin flavors. This is balanced and glides to a lingering finish that displays sweet fruit and tobacco notes. Best from 2018 through 2028. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Riva del Bric is a portion of the Ginestra cru, with 25-year-old vines planted on a very steep, well-draining slope. The 2011 Barolo Riva del Bric offers a delicate and ethereal interpretation of Nebbiolo from a warm vintage. The bouquet reveals cola, cherry, wild berry and spicy balsam herb. Indeed, the wine's tangy balsamic signature is its defining characteristic. There is a fleeting note of sweet blackberry fruit on the finish. (ML) 91+ Inner quote mark (6/2018)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Barolo Riva del Bric is a bit richer and deeper than it usually is, yet all the elements are very nicely balanced throughout. Sweet floral notes meld into a core of expressive red stone fruits in a very pretty, delineated Barolo with lovely layers of nuance and plenty of near to medium-term appeal. In most vintages, the Riva del Bric is less complex than the Ginestra, but in 2011, the inverse is true. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2015)
