2010 Paolo Conterno "Riva del Bric" Barolo

SKU #1419239 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Barolo Riva del Bric shows a high degree of floral intensity with pressed violets and rose followed by bright red fruit and distant spice. The maceration period is relatively brief (15 days) and this has helped to fix the wine’s intensity, both in terms of its appearance and its bouquet. Vinification includes three years in botte grande. Mineral nuances and fresh acidity characterize the finish. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Firm veins of tannin run through the 2010 Barolo Riva del Bric. Pine, mint, wild flowers and crushed rocks all combine to give the 2010 a sense of pulsating energy and pure tension that is impossible to miss. Rose petal, spice and sweet red berry nuances are layered into the tense, brilliant finish. The 2010 is going to need time in bottle, but it is quite promising. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2014)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of aniseed and earth with white truffle on the nose. Powerful but elegant tannins offer a complex texture. Coffee beans, wood and velvet on the palate. Better in 2016. Inner quote mark (8/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A light-bodied, spicy style, showing cherry, licorice and tobacco flavors. Displays intensity and fine length on a sleek frame. Should open up soon. Best from 2016 through 2025. (BS) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid ruby with orange rim. Brooding rich cherry and spice. Youthful and lively acidity and fresh fruit and lots of powdery drying tannins. Not enormously long but with real character and style. 16/20 points. (WS) Inner quote mark (3/2014)
