WineO Mark Review

Giacomo Conterno’s wines are known for their intense, long-lasting flavors that mature beautifully in old oak barrels. With traditional methods like maceration and aging on the skins to extract tannins from the grape juice it is no wonder why Barolo lovers love them so much!

The aroma of this wine is filled with classic Barolo aromas of tar, strawberries, cherries, leather, and cocoa. There are also notes of dried roses, mushrooms, licorice, and earth.

It’s full-bodied, elegant, with an impressive complexity and depth. There are flavors of raspberries, cherries, strawberries, leather, and dried roses on the palate with hints of black licorice and forest floor. This wine is well-balanced and has high tannins, refreshing acidity, and a long smooth finish.

This is a fantastic and unbelievable Barolo. One of the best Italian red wines I have ever tasted. Highly-rated by the all the famed wine critics for a reason.
