Conteisa is a Barolo-inspired wine from Angelo Gaja (with 8% Barbera) that opens with very attractive and approachable aromas of red fruit, tobacco, leather, moist earth and black licorice. There's a youthful element to the personality (that hints at a long aging future ahead) backed by silky, but firm tannins and beautifully crisp acidity. The wine will be at its best after 2018.

The 2006 Langhe Conteisa is a beautifully firm, transparent wine endowed with expressive red fruits, menthol, flowers and licorice. The 2006 is decidedly more reticent than the 2007, but it possesses tons of harmony, length and class. The finish is utterly seductive. -- Antonio Galloni

Drinkable now, yet should improve over the next decade. Best from 2012...

Drinkable now, yet should improve over the next decade. Best from 2012 through 2030. – BS
