2013 ALDO CONTERNO BAROLO BUSSIA
When considering a list of Barolo’s top producers, it would be impossible to exclude Aldo Conterno. Inspired by the modern style of Angelo Gaja, Aldo cut a path that includes both modern and old worlds. Old world Barolos are know for tannins and heavy structure, which allows them to age forever, however they often need to be cellared for years before consuming. The more modern Barolos are accessible after just a few years in the bottle and they open up to be brilliant and compelling wines that are easy to love. The 2013 Barolo Bussia has already earned 96 Points from James Suckling and offers a gorgeous expression of Nebbiollo. It’s a wine that will leave you thinking about it for days after trying it.
Bussia, one of the “cru” vineyard/districts located in the commune of Monforte d’Alba is one of the most desirable growing areas in Barolo and is famous for the dynamic terroir which expresses a penetrating structure and focused concentration of fruit. Aldo’s Barolo Bussia comes from three distinct blocks in Bussia and offers old world complexity with new world accessibility. At under $100/btl there are few Barolos in my mind that would compare.
