Pale garnet color.
Aromas of barnyard, red fruit.
Dry. Flavors of barnyard, red cherry, tar, rose petal, leather. Rich, firm tannins, and high acidity. Amazing complexity and amazing despite barnyard notes.
Finish: 4/5 — 2 months ago
This boy ready to drink! (Yes you could age it another freaking 20, but I lean more towards the fresher fun side of barolo.) Where as Mascarello is delicate and ethereal , Conterno is a decisive power house. And at the right moment can be sublime and uniquely aromatic. High toned with structured tannins it was a perfect wine for braised lamb necks and olives. Even Madi was blown away as the wine opened up and offered some serious cherry and velvety tar. And then there was the finish. Jesus. Lasting an eternity. Making you want another sip.

Selected off the list at Boiler Room. Giacomo Fenocchio’s holdings in the Bussia MGA reside within the sub zones of Bussia Sottana (of which they enjoy some of the best parcels) and that of Munie. Opened about 30 minutes before service; no decant a￼nd no formal notes. The 2014 “Bussia” from G. Fenocchio starts off a little shy, but it gains weight and significant aromatic character with time in the glass. Bright cherries, slightly on the more tart side with tar over roses. The body seems a little demure early on but it eventually fleshes out and becomes almost chewy! The structure I want and expect from Barolo is there too with lovely acid and stiff tannins. The finish is long and savory. Last sip was the best. This was quite a lovely example of 2014 and a fine accompaniment to bone-in pork chops and Morgan Ranch beef cheeks. Drink now with some patience and over the next ten or so years. — 2 months ago
