Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Upon release, Aldo Conterno’s ’04 Barolo Colonnello was praised for its abundant sweet fruits, its enticing aromatics, its beautiful concentration, and its soaring structure. Now with more than 15 years of maturity, this Barolo is coming into its own, layering its succulent fruits with warm baking spices, iron ore, pressed rose petals, forest floor, and touches of umami and tea. This mature Barolo is all about refinement and subtle power, unfolding its generous layers with a nuanced touch, as fine-grained tannins cling to the cheeks; twin engines of savory minerals and keen acidity drive this wine to a resonant, impressive finish. Made from grapes grown on 40 to 45-year-old vines, the third "cru" from Bussia Soprana, the gracious Colonnello is the deepest in color and consistently the most approachable of Aldo Conterno’s single-vineyard Barolos. Grapes ferment for about 30 days, and the wine spends about 28 months in oak casks and about two years in bottle before release.
