Description Sub Region Producer Notes
1978 saw profoundly tannic, deeply structured Barolo wines that were naturally built for longevity; Aldo Conterno’s ’78 Barolo Bussia fits this model--now with more than forty years of perfect maturity, it’s delivering a transcendent drinking experience. Tertiary notes of smoky tar, truffles, black tea and game surround the lingering sappy cherries, dried rose petals, spice, licorice and espresso in this mature Barolo. Despite its maturity and despite being Aldo Conterno’s entry-level Barolo, this ’78 Bussia reveals an ethereal mouthfeel, a soft palate of complex notes, and fully integrated tannins that linger on the wine’s lifted finish. Deriving from 12 acres of plots in Bussia Soprana, carefully selected grapes ferment for about a month in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for upwards of two years in cask, followed by twelve months in bottle before release.
