2012 Paolo Conterno, "Riva del Bric" Barolo, Piedmont

Press and Tasting Notes

"This is fabulous Barolo with burnt orange, blackberry, meat, earth, and fresh herb. Full-bodied, round and velvety. So flavorful and crazy. Drink now. Why wait? But it will age wonderfully."

James Suckling on the 2011 vintage.

THE REVIEW

Extremely limited! With only 24 hours left, take advantage of this 97 point blockbuster Barolo while supplies last. This is a certain sell-out. Shipping now, quantities are limited.
    For decades, the Conterno family has dominated the Grand Cru properties of Piedmont. This particular bottling of Barolo comes from a parcel where the sun, moon and stars align!
    The grapes from this beautiful wine come from the famed Ginestra vineyard - a vineyard that is often referred to as the Grand Cru of Piedmont and is the epicenter of blockbuster Barolo producers such as Clerico, Grasso and Giacomo Conterno (Paolo's cousin) whose Ginestra Barolos cost in excess of $100.
    This classic representation of the vintage offers rose petals, orange peel, sweet red and black wild berries, mint and anise along with earth and distant spice. "So flavorful and crazy. Drink now. Why wait? But it will age wonderfully." James Suckling
    So impressed with the 2011 Paolo Conterno and its sub-$50 price tag that it had to be our holiday feature. With its luscious and inviting fruit, be sure to give it as a gift to a friend, colleague or yourself this holiday season. Enjoy! Read More »
