Description Sub Region Producer Notes
1961 is widely considered one of the great Piemonte vintages of the 1960s, and this Giacomo Conterno Barolo stands the test of time. This wine’s remarkable primary red and blue fruits dance against a framework of worn saddle leather, crushed herbs, dried rose petals, warm earth, and tertiary notes of autumn leaves, roasted game, and white truffles. At once ethereal and powerful, this Barolo floats on the palate while its spectacular minerality and surprising acidic core propel its silky, complex and kaleidoscopic finish. A magical wine, Conterno’s ’61 Barolo captivates from every angle, embodying its majestic vintage with its sheer finesse and breathtaking longevity. This 1961 Barolo dates from the years when the Giacomo Conterno estate still purchased their grapes from trusted local growers with prime vineyards in Monforte and Serralunga; this Barolo was crafted almost entirely by Giovanni, Giacomo’s son, in traditional methods.
