2006 Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonello (Piedmont, Italy) Wine - Red $174.99 (750mL)
Colonnello lies on the Monteforte border with Barolo. With a higher percentage of sand and about 40-45 years old, it defines its signature aromatics and refined, seamless texture. This is a serious single vineyard bottling from a legendary producer.
Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
A rich, sumptuous Barolo, with bass tones providing a full range
of plum, earth and spice to match its more elevated floral and
mineral notes. Firm, but not stiff, with a fine lingering aftertaste of
tobacco and spice. Best from 2013 through 2030.
Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
The 2006 Barolo Colonnello opens with a fabulous bouquet of tar and roses. A focused, sinewy wine in this vintage, the Colonnello emerges from the glass with regal elegance. It is a mysterious, sensual Barolo that only gradually reveals the true breadth of its personality. Constantly changing in the glass, the Colonnello offers tons of complexity, with sweet, aromatic notes that return to frame the austere, powerful finish. The terrain in Colonnello contains a slightly higher percentage of sand, making it Conterno's most silky, accessible single-vineyard Barolo, in relative terms, of course. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.
