Aldo Conterno Barolo/Cicala' 96/97/98 2000

Aldo Conterno Barolo/Cicala' 96/97/98 750ML 2000       
Sku: 10243

the vineyard “Cicala” [meaning: balm-cricket] is about 40-45 years old and its vines are replanted from time to time. The main variety of Nebbiolo is Lampia and its rootstock is Rupestris du Lot.

This is a big, powerful red with loads of floral, berry, plum and truffle aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet refined. It builds on the palate with lots of racy tannins and an ultralong finish. A long-ager. Nearly matches the amazing 1996 in quality. The best from Conterno this year. Best after 2010. 800 cases made. –JS

The 2000 Barolo Cicala, as always my favorite from this house, is significantly longer and more intense and with greater bite and grip on the finish, and its nose, with aromas of rose petals and anisette, is more focused and expressive of true Nebbiolo character.
