ALDO CONTERNO Barolo 'Cicala' 2010

The 2010 Aldo Conterno 'Cicala' looks as if it will be a late bloomer. Today, this offers pretty aromas of dried red berries, licorice, floral, wet stones and hint of spice. This is tightly wound and firmly structured around fine tannins. The elegant finish is long and chewy, with red berries and licorice leaving a lasting impression. By far, this is the least approachable of all that 2010s I have tasted from Aldo Conterno and will need some serious time, but that being said it is an age worthy wine that will thrive in the cellar for decades.
