Diego Conterno Barolo 2016
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Conterno's 2016 Barolo is a beautiful wine that offers a good bit of fruitiness allied to classic structure. The first burst of sweet red berry fruit is deceptive, as the wine feels approachable, but then the young Nebbiolo acids and tannins comes through. The 2016 is not super-complex, but it is incredibly appealing.
Aromas of red-skinned berry, tobacco and camphor emerge from the glass. The structured palate offers juicy red cherry, clove and white pepper alongside youthfully austere tannins. Drink 2024-2032.
