1998 Aldo Conterno Grandbussia Barolo

After decanting for several hours, the nose started to open up  and reveal remarkably classic Barolo virtues.  The wine was super clean and showed brilliantly, having great acid fruit and earth.  Most importantly these elements were utterly in balance and working synergistically together.  The wine has an open palate enabling all of the dynamic virtues of the wine to dance.  There are savory characters at the same time as puckering acidity, the wine is palate filling and is dynamic as the wine progresses in the glass.

This is a completely delicious, nuanced, intricate and sophisticated bottle of wine.  You can sit with a glass for hours watching it unfold and evolve.
