Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Complex and multifaceted, the ’11 Barolo Colonnello changes every moment--this is a rich, structured wine that shifts with kaleidoscopic beauty. Dark fruit dances with fresh-cut herbs, balsam, black licorice, rose petals, warm saddle leather, and cigar wrapper in this intense, evocative wine. Chewy tannins and a fine acidic spine provide an age-worthy structure, but even now, this wine floods the mouth with nuanced notes as it builds to a mineral-laden finish that’s accented by new leather and violets. Made from grapes grown on 40 to 45-year-old vines, the third "cru" from Bussia Soprana, the Colonnello is the deepest in color and often the most approachable of Aldo Conterno’s single-vineyard Barolos; after fermenting on the skins for about five weeks, this wine ages for 28 months in botti before bottling. Powerful and vibrant, this ’11 Barolo needs a couple of years in the cellar before it drinks for decades.
