ALDO CONTERNO Barolo 'Cicala' 2008

The 2008 Cicala is a fascinating wine that is impressive for its elegance and purity. There is such a beautiful freshness here, with gorgeous ripe strawberries and cherries mixed with tar, smoke, spices, crushed stones and floral that make for an intoxicating aroma. Shows amazing depth and focus with a tightly wound core of fine-grained silky tannins that firm up on the ultra-long mineral-laced finish that lingers on and on. The wines of Aldo Conterno are considered to be among the best in all the region and this is just one reason why, there looks to be a very bright future here. (Best 2016-2030) - February, 2013 (JD)
