  • Decanted four hours. Cherry fruit scents emit from the bottle right after uncorking. Later at dinner, Sarah cites the bubble gum notes. Very round and smooth palate, symmetrical, balanced. Fills the mouth nicely, yet no part alone comes on too strong. Great balance, nice length. Tannins are soft and plush. With Sarah at Marta, NYC.

    The following night, just like on the first night, scents of red fruit fill the room right after pulling the cork. No degradation over night, still lovely, round, cherry fruit, very balanced palate, very harmonious. Tannins are just starting to break down. Finish is long, fresh, clean, with dark cherry-menthol notes.

  • Judgment of Madrid, the time for aficionados plus a late dinner (Vila Viniteca - Madrid): Love it or hate it, usually that's the dichotomy when you're speaking about Aldo Conterno.
    That also was in my own experience until today. This time was almost neutral, I mean, Nebbiolo on the nose but at the timid side. Palate is tannic and fruity as you were expecting but lacks complexity. Quite simple after all. I would like something else for such a kind of vintage like 2001 is.
    Anyway really especial pairing white truffle.

    Ámalo u ódialo, normalmente es la dicotomía en la que se mueven las botellas de Aldo Conterno.
    Así era también mi propia experiencia hasta hoy. Esta vez fue casi neutral, quiero decir, Nebbiolo en nariz pero del lado tímido. La boca es tánica y afrutada tal y como esperabas pero carece de complejidad. Bastante simplota después de todo. Me gustaría algo más para un a añada como esta.
    Aún así fue realmente especial acompañando trufa blanca.

  • I uncorked this at the office and was greeted by some amazing aromatics, cherries and berries and light mushroom. On the palate, lovely, soft truffly black fruit and an excellent, soft texture. With air and steak, shows lovely balance, dried strawberry, spice, lovely structure, roses, truffly cherry fruit and a huge finish. Heads and shoulders above the 2001 Aldo Conterno Bussia I opened in January '14. I brought this to Fairway Cafe with the guys. Final thoughts: sweet, truffly fruit.

  • Underbar doft med både körsbär och jordgubbar, lite lakrits och apelsinskal, blommig violdoft och början till vissa mognadstoner med läder, mull och tryffel.
    Ett väldigt elegant och feminint vin med en helt underbar balans.
    Gissade blint på Aldo Conterno och 2001. Nån gång får man ha tur!
    Det är så jäkla gott med bra Barolo!

  • Lovely wine from Aldo, from a truly great vintage.
    Super nose with forest floor, truffle, acetone, roses, cherries and some wet earth.
    On the palate this is long, complex and deep, with mature fruit, mainly cherries, spices, good tannin structure and a lovely acidity.
    Will definitely last for several years to come if preferred, but drinking really good now.
    Very fine Barolo.
