Description

James Suckling scored this Aldo Conterno Cicala 2016 98 points. That is a huge score but hardly surprising as its from one of the best producers in Barolo, from one of the most sensational vineyards within Barolo and on top of that, from the 2016 vintage which many are saying is the vintage of the century. Can I have a case please….. ok I may need to take out a mortgage, but what pleasure awaits, and it will be worth every penny. I am sure James would agree…

Smells

an exotic perfume instantly captivates the soul, with dried strawberry, fresh rose petals, chocolate, tar and even hints of orange rind leading through to menthol and a sappy, toasty oak nuance.

Tastes

a profound wine clearly showing its heritage and class, with flavours of red cherry, a red berry compote with sandalwood, red iron, tobacco, and hints of balsamic, and juniper. Pure, focused fruit with drive and energy that shines and sings from whoa to go. A streamlined wine now and given 10years or more in a temperature-controlled cellar and this will simply blow your mind.
