Conterno’s 1970 Barolo is just off the charts gorgeous. It is color perfectly translucent, the 1970 soars out of the glass with all that magical perfume that makes older Barolo so alluring. Rose petal, mint, sweet tobacco, espresso, dried cherry and star anise give the 1970 a beguiling exoticism that is hard to fully describe. On the palate, the 1970 is supremely long, persistent and delicate, in the way only fine, aged Barolo can be. What a fabulous bottle!
