Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
Rich and saturated with cherry raspberry licorice and tar notes this red is concentrated and intense. Remains elegant and focused on the grip-filled finish. Best from 2015 through 2028. -BS

Conterno's 2007 Barolo impresses for its sense of harmony and freshness. The wine has firmed up nicely since I first tasted it in November 2010 boding well for its development in the cellar. In 2007 the Barolo possesses an extra degree of richness and generosity than is typically the case never a bad thing for an entry-level bottling. In a few years the soft supple fruit should be at the height of its expression. This is a jewel of a wine and a huge outperformer in relative terms. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

Lovely tannins to this wine with a plum and chocolate character and hints of nuts. Full yet balanced and silky. Very delicate. So delicious now but best in three or four years.

Good medium red. Expressive aromas of red cherry and raspberry. Plump and velvety, in a distinctly softer style than the 2008 version and a bit less refined.

Plump and velvety, in a distinctly softer style than the 2008 version and a bit less refined. Relatively sweet and open Barolo, approachable now without being heavy. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a nutty nuance.
