Description Producer Notes
 
Conterno's Colonnello cru is the most consistently approachable of the estate's single-vineyard expressions, delivering a deeper color and greater intensity of fruit expression relative to the other crus (Romirasco and Cicala). That said, the sand that dominates Colonnello's soil composition provides for elegance and finesse.    Slightly younger than Cicala (35"“40 years old), the Colonnello cru is best, perhaps, for those collectors whose patience falls short of infinite, as it is the most reliably approachable of the single-vineyard expressions. This forward disposition is apparent in its deeper color and greater intensity of fruit expression, though all elements of its vinification regime—both aging periods and techniques—are the same as those of the Cicala's.  A fresh nose of dried flowers and fennel is followed by a juicy palate of ripe red plums, strawberries, and kirsch liqueur. Good structure, bright acidity, and velvety tannins make the Colonnello suave, elegant, and eminently drinkable at any age.
