Stunning rose-petal nose with hints of licorice and herbal tea. The palate has generosity, and the tannins have a polish that's rare in 2014 Barolos. If you like tannins, then you will agree with us that this is already...   Stunning rose-petal nose with hints of licorice and herbal tea. The palate has generosity, and the tannins have a polish that's rare in 2014 Barolos. If you like tannins, then you will agree with us that this is already delicious. It also has a long life ahead of it. Better after 2020.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2018
The 2014 Barolo Bussia Cicala comes from a 3.2-hectare parcel, and only 5,400 bottles are made despite the fact that there is the potential for higher volumes. Both the Cicala and the Romirasco sites are relatively steep...   The 2014 Barolo Bussia Cicala comes from a 3.2-hectare parcel, and only 5,400 bottles are made despite the fact that there is the potential for higher volumes. Both the Cicala and the Romirasco sites are relatively steep and therefore enjoy longer sunlight hours each day of summer for ripe and concentrated fruit. Of these new single-vineyard releases from Poderi Aldo Conterno, Cicala is my top choice in 2014. The wine shows a pure and enduring mouthfeel with salty or saline minerality that makes it such a pleasure to drink. The wine boasts a direct and vertical delivery of aromas, with cassis and dried raspberry that burst to the top with brightness. Cicala is a more direct and focused expression next to Colonnello, which tends to be more broad and horizontal instead. - Monica Larner

Firm, dense red fruits on the nose are followed by a rich and creamy palate backed by robust, fine-grained, textured tannins. This has depth, concentration and grip, with a long, chewy finish. No rush to drink this...   Firm, dense red fruits on the nose are followed by a rich and creamy palate backed by robust, fine-grained, textured tannins.

Wine Spectator, January 2019
Broad, rich and mellow, evoking cherry, strawberry, Bourbon, leather, loam and tobacco aromas and flavors. The firm structure takes over as this red builds to a long finish. Be patient. Best from 2023 through 2040. — B.S.
