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.

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.

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
