Cellar/Tasting Notes
The 2008 Barolo from the well renowned Conterno family is a magnificent opulent italian red wine from The vineyard “Romirasco”. The signature initial aromas of Barolo are evident- violet, red currant, licorice. Upon maturation- floral notes are joined by peppery tones, black fruits and leather flavors. The 2008 balance of acidity and tannins are is well received as the full bodied structure is lush, elegant and age worthy.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
"The 2008 Barolo Romirasco is striking. It possesses a cool, mineral-drenched personality similar to the Cicala, but with an extra dimension of textural finesse. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint and crushed rocks are woven together in this exquisite, gorgeous Barolo. Powerful and authoritative, the Romirasco impresses for its depth and unmistakable pedigree. Today the 2008 is an infant, but great things are in store for those who can wait."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 94
"Light red-ruby. Cassis, blackberry, violet and sweet oak on the nose. Sweet, juicy and imploded, with terrific verve to the urgent flavors of dark berries and bitter chocolate. Elegant, penetrating and strong, with the cut and verve to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. Finishes with oustanding lift. "For us, the best time to drink wines is between 10 and 15 years after the vintage, whether Barolo, Burgundy or even Champagne," noted Giacomo Conterno. "At that stage they have all the elements: fruit, acidity, tertiary character, all the characteristics of the soil. After 20 years, nearly all wines are dominated by their tertiary character.""
Wine Spectator (WS): 96
"Refined tannins provide a tapestry for the cherry, tar and spice flavors in this suave and silky red, which turns leaner and more sinewy by the finish, picking up a mineral component. The flavors linger."
