Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2015 sees the inaugural vintage of Giacomo Conterno’s Barolo Arione, the famed nearly 22-acre vineyard that neighbors Conterno’s Francia plot, and this 2015 bottling is stunning. Layers of juicy cherries and sun-warmed berries leap from the glass, complemented by tarry earth, new leather, pencil lead, spicy tobacco, and subtle rose petals. The dense and earthy ’15 Barolo Arione is all about power, but for all its seductive “oomph,” this wine showcases the elegance of the Conterno house style in its impeccably balanced chewy tannins, electric acidity, savory minerals, and sweet floral lift. The estate makes its Barolo Arione with natural yeasts, temperature-controlled fermentation, and a lengthy maceration of 3-4 weeks; the wine ages in large Slavonian botti and in bottle for a total of four years. Giacomo Conterno made only three botti of its Barolo Arione, one of which became part of the estate’s Barolo Monfortino Riserva.
