The 2016 Barolo Colonnello is a dark, bold, lush wine full of character. A blast of macerated black cherry, spice, leather, tobacco and menthol infuses the 2016 with striking depth. Resonant and ample, with notable character, the Colonnello is gorgeous in this tasting. In fact, it’s one of the finest Barolos I have tasted from the Conterno brothers in a number of years. The substantial finish is a thing of beauty.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2036
