The Conterno family started bottling this single vineyard wine after 2004 when they didn't make Gran Bussia, which is a blend of Rominasco, Cicala and Colonello. Incredible aromas of crushed strawberries with blueberries and minerals with hints of porcini mushrooms. Intense and deep nose. Full-bodied, with great depth of fruit with chewy tannins and a long finish of balsamic, dried fruits and chewy. Superb. Try in 2016.

The 2008 Barolo Romirasco is striking. It possesses a cool, mineral-drenched personality similar to the Cicala, but with an extra dimension of textural finesse.

It possesses a cool, mineral-drenched personality similar to the Cicala, but with an extra dimension of textural finesse. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint and crushed rocks are woven together in this exquisite, gorgeous Barolo. Powerful and authoritative, the Romirasco impresses for its depth and unmistakable pedigree. Today the 2008 is an infant, but great things are in store for those who can wait. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.

Refined tannins provide a tapestry for the cherry, tar and spice flavors in this suave and silky red, which turns leaner and more sinewy by the finish, picking up a mineral component. The flavors linger. Best from 2017... Refined tannins provide a tapestry for the cherry, tar and spice flavors in this suave and silky red, which turns leaner and more sinewy by the finish, picking up a mineral component. The flavors linger. Best from 2017 through 2034. 150 cases imported. –BS

Sweet, juicy and imploded, with terrific verve to the urgent flavors of dark berries and bitter chocolate. Elegant, penetrating and strong, with the cut and verve to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. Finishes with oustanding lift. "For us, the best time to drink wines is between 10 and 15 years after the vintage, whether Barolo, Burgundy or even Champagne," noted Giacomo Conterno. "At that stage they have all the elements: fruit, acidity, tertiary character, all the characteristics of the soil. After 20 years, nearly all wines are dominated by their tertiary character." 94+ - Stephen Tanzer
