TN: 1968 Giacomo Conterno Barolo (Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo)

  • 1968 Giacomo Conterno Barolo - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (4/25/2020)
    There are no great wines but great bottles. This adage applies to Giacomo Conterno barolos as my success rate is around 50%. Beautiful ruby with fading rim. With an hour of air, sweet subtle red fruit, strawberry jam, dry cherry, leather, sous bois, tar, strong iron, cumin, tea, soy, caramel and earth. Very good concentration, finely layered subtle red fruit, silky and fluid, beautiful balance and harmony, and a seamless long sweet red fruit driven finish with strong iron and cumin at the end. This is a very complete wine, strong Conterno iron, pleasant surprise. (95 pts.)
