ALDO CONTERNO ALDO CONTERNO - Barolo Riserva Gran Bussia - 2010

ALDO CONTERNO Barolo Riserva Gran Bussia 2010

See the wine detail page

99 Points

Glorious aromas of roses and other flowers with blackberries and ripe plums. Spectacular. Perfection. Full-bodied, firm and chewy with polished and tight tannins. Slightly dusty. Great length and beauty. Very, very persistent on the palate. Needs another two or three years to soften, but already a classic.
