2017 Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia 6x750ml

Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia 2017 The kaleidoscopic 2017 Barolo Bussia shifts in the glass, showing by turns notes of ripe cherries and berries, pencil lead, exotic spices, new leather, and... plum. Chewy tannins cling to the cheeks as this wine glides to a juicy but tightly wound finish. A fascinating marriage of traditional Barolo profile and more modernist approachability, this cuvée Barolo needs a year or two of rest in the cellar and then will drink for decades. Poderi Aldo Conterno Aldo Conterno rose to fame by crafting some of the best-known, best-loved cru Barolo expressions in its Barolo Romirasco, Colonnello, and Cicala, as well as its Chardonnay Bussiador and its Quartetto, a red wine that blends indigenous Freisa with international grapes. In 1969, Aldo Conterno famously parted ways with his brother at their father’s estate, Giacomo Conterno, and founded Poderi Aldo Conterno in the “Favot” cellar on 61 acres in Bussia of Monforte d'Alba, the heart of Barolo country. Aldo’s vision was to craft wines that blended traditional structure, grace, and longevity with exquisitely transparent terroir, seductive juiciness, and a clearly defined personality. Before his death in 2012, Aldo achieved all this and more, creating a winemaking legacy that set him apart as one of the world’s greatest winemakers. The Aldo Conterno estate continues Aldo’s remarkable winemaking work in the hands of his three sons, Franco, Stefano, and Giacomo.
