Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonello 2006
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Poderi Aldo Conterno|
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. 400 cases imported.
Barolo Colonnello is a determined, confident wine with a rich, succulent style and ripe aromas of blackberry, spice, sweet vanilla and polished black stone. The chewy mouthfeel also shows a precise stylistic choice and "the colonel" is richly opulent and enduring on the finish.
