Description

The incredible Colonnello, Barolo 2007 from the fabled Poderi Aldo Conterno. This particular vintage has been greatly lauded by many wine critics (see below)

The wine has been stored in my private cellar since purchasing 2 cases in 2010. This wine is very hard to find in the UK. The only place I can find it on wine searcher is showing £125 per bottle in bond. (£152 Duty Paid)

Beautiful now, or will cellar for many more years.

With the festive season nearing this wine will fit the bill if you are looking for something rather special.

Critic notes:

97 points James Suckling: "What a nose with licorice, violets and berries. Dark berries. Full and racy, with fine linear tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful balance of fruit and character. Subtle and fascinating. Reminds me of 1997." (05/2011)

94 points Robert Parker s Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barolo Colonnello is one of the darkest, richest wines I have ever tasted from Aldo Conterno. The explosive, textured Colonnello bursts from the glass with tons of dark fruit, violets, licorice and oak. A long, vibrant finish and the sheer depth of the fruit suggest that the Colonnello will require patience, despite the radiance of the year. This is a stellar effort from Aldo Conterno. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. (AG)" (02/2011)

94 points Wine Spectator: "A blast of sweet cherry and plum marks this ripe, round Barolo, which displays a firm structure, evidenced by the wall of tannins on the finish. A bit heavy-handed now, yet long and with enough fruit to stand up to the tannins. Be patient. Best from 2015 through 2032. (BS)" (04/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer s International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red with ruby highlights. Wild, highly nuanced nose combines blackberry, licorice, minerals, flowers and herbs. Offers compelling sweetness but more structure and cut than the classico, showing a tight core of dark fruits and minerals and excellent focus. Less velvety and open-knit today but classy and long, with substantial ripe tannins reaching the front teeth. Not quite as chiseled or refined as the 2008 but there s more stuffing here. (ST) 93+" (10/2011)
