2016 Aldo Conterno "Colonnello" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1516092 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very fine-grained with pretty berry, spice, roasted-nut and cedar aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and chewy, yet polished and intense. Very, very long. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2016 Barolo Bussia Colonnello shows dark fruit intensity, dried cherry, spice, licorice and tilled earth. The wine delivers its aromas in a direct and immediate manner, with menthol and balsam herb fitting into oaky aromas of sweet spice. For whatever reason, I notice the oak more in Colonnello, but this will relax with time. The wine will be ready to drink after the 10-year mark. (ML) 95+ Inner quote mark (7/2020)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Menthol, vanilla and macerated cherry waft from the glass as this red settles into its core themes of cherry, plum, tar, tobacco, leather and spice. Muscular tannins hold court on the finish, yet well-proportioned, long and classy. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Colonnello is a dark, bold, lush wine full of character. A blast of macerated black cherry, spice, leather, tobacco and menthol infuses the 2016 with striking depth. Resonant and ample, with notable character, the Colonnello is gorgeous in this tasting. In fact, it's one of the finest Barolos I have tasted from the Conterno brothers in a number of years. The substantial finish is a thing of beauty. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2021)
