Poderi Aldo Conterno Riserva Gran Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

$225

This is a great showing for Conterno's 1999 Barolo Riserva Granbussia. A deeply-flavored, structured wine, it offers expressive aromatics and layers of sweet black cherries, roses and tar in a powerful, intense style. It needs at least a few additional years of cellaring for the oak to soften, but it is a terrific effort. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024. eRobertParker.com

From magnum. Super funky nose for first 15-20 minutes. Totally blew off and gorgeous full bodied wine with deep color, black fruit, tar, balance and 45 second finish one just savors. Home run.

Oh my God! Don't know where to begin with this incredible Barolo. Aromas: cherry, mint, leather, smoke and game. Tasting this wine is a sublime experience that reminds me how I first got into wine through Italian varietals. So food friendly with silky tannins and flavors of cherry and leather. A special wine.

What a mind blower! Forget rating this wine for a moment and focus on the complexity and layers of flavor.
