About

Ratings:

97

Here in its debut vintage at Conterno, the 2015 Barolo Arione is wonderfully aromatic and nuanced. Sage, mint, pine, licorice and wild cherry all grace this vivid, exquisite Barolo with stunning layers of complexity. In the glass, the 2015 is ample and evocative, with all of the mystery of Nebbiolo that unfolds over time. Firm Serralunga tannins need time to soften, likely tons of time, but the beauty of the Arione is impossible to miss. The 2015 finishes with tremendous weight, substance and resonance, all of which will make it a fascinating wine to follow over the next several decades.

97 Wine Spectator

Distinctively spicy, this red exhibits rose, cherry, strawberry and mineral notes, with hints of soy, tobacco and iron. Tightens up, with firm and dense tannins, remaining long and compact on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2048. 666 cases made.
