2001 Aldo Conterno, Barolo Vigna Cicala, Piemonte, Italy

Once again I rested pen and paper. I have tasted Cicala three times before this bottle. Stunning wine - so seductive with intriguing deep sensual fruits. Should I raise an eyebrow in terms of this nearly perfect wine it would be its already great drinking pleasure. It seems so round and perfectly ready to drink. Not evolved in terms of red fruit, but just so damn sexy. Maybe it’s just a wine which will never close down and will provide consistently drinking pleasure and follows the path of Cicala’s “normal” potential curve. I hope so; my wine groups are loaded with them ;-). (97)
