Welcome to Corney & Barrow Login
The Barolo is a laudable standard-bearer both for Giacomo Conterno and for the vintage. Jet-plum in colour, this has a heady, spiced nose rich in vibrant primary fruit, laced with pepper and underscored by a fine minerality.
The palate is very fresh and fragrant, violets, roses and red fruits, particularly strawberries to the fore, supported by rounded, well-integrated tannins. The most impressive aspect of Conterno's Barolo 2005 is its sheer elegance. For customers who are increasingly tired of sledgehammer oak and wines overly marked by winemaking, this address is the perfect port of call, producing exceptionally honest, traditional translations of remarkable terroir.
