2001 Giacomo Conterno, Barolo Cascina Francia, Piemonte, Italy

(Tasted at a restaurant – business dinner, impression only) Very shy on the nose. I rested the glass 20 minutes and when returning a rose note, sealed in red fruit came forward. The style is very old School Barolo and very little sweetness emerged in the tightly packed wine. The taste is where the action is – impressive with violent structure and concentration. It requires minimum 5-7 years of cellaring, but indeed impressive
