About

Ratings:

92

A firm, lightly chewy Barolo with cherry, walnut and chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, savory and long. Shows intensity and focus. Better after 2022.

91 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Conterno’s 2016 Barolo is a beautiful wine that offers a good bit of fruitiness allied to classic structure. The first burst of sweet red berry fruit is deceptive, as the wine feels approachable, but then the young Nebbiolo acids and tannins comes through. The 2016 is not super-complex, but it is incredibly appealing.

91 Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of red-skinned berry, tobacco and camphor emerge from the glass. The structured palate offers juicy red cherry, clove and white pepper alongside youthfully austere tannins. Drink 2024–2032.
