Cicala 2019

Aldo Conterno

Case Format: 1x150cl

This wine has an incredible perfume of rosewood with powerful notes of delicious cherries notes, tart, spices, earthy unami and multitude of fruits. It is quite pronounced with high acid, tannic but very integrated and rounded. The vineyard “Cicala” [meaning: balm-cricket] is about 40-45 years old. Poderi Aldo Conterno is a well-regarded and much soughter-after Piedmont producer known for its wines from the best parcels of the Bussia vineyard. Aldo Conterno, was regarded by many as the greatest of all Barolo winemakers. The vineyard situated on south and southwest-facing slopes with chalky-clay soils.



James Suckling

Lots of burnt orange peel, nutmeg, hazelnut and ripe/dried strawberry aromas follow through to a medium to full body, with firm and linear tannins and a fresh and vivid finish. Energetic and fine. Better after 2027.

Jancis Robinson

Monforte d’Alba. Mid ruby. Very sweet, seductive fruit on the nose leads into quite a marked tannic palate, despite the apparently featherlight body which belies the alcohol level! Dry char on the end but no heat. This should make great old bones but isn’t ready yet.
