Moderately saturated medium red. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, smoky underbrush and tobacco. A juicy, musky midweight, with lovely perfume and vinosity to the flavors of red fruits, flowers, truffle and smoke. Finishes with fine but firm tannins and good aromatic persistence. This includes a percentage of younger vines because there was no Favot made in 2004.

Pale brickish garnet. So herbal it is almost reminiscent of southern French garrigue scrubland. But then that floral perfume intervenes to remind you it is Italy and Nebbiolo. Amazing intensity and vivacity that transports you to another place of great pleasure. Marked acidity that just grabs your complete attention. Fine pure fruit starting to show secondary aromas of undergrowth. Lovely, lovely wine. (JH)

Aldo Conterno's 2004 Barolo is simply beautiful. A medium red, it presents a feminine expression of Nebbiolo in its perfumed, spiced red raspberries and cherries. This is a soft, accessible Barolo ideal for near and mid-term drinking that fully captures the essence of this great vintage. Beginning with the 2004 vintage, this wine includes fruit from 15-year-old vines in Colonnello, a vineyard with sandier soils that lies on the border with Barolo. In the past this fruit was used for the Langhe Favot but now it makes up about 30% of the blend for the Barolo. As a result this bottling now carries the Barolo designation rather than the Barolo Bussia name which was used for previous vintages.

Plum and spice aromas, with undertones of meat. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Needs time to mellow and come together. Very structured. From this vintage, 20 percent of the Nebbiolo grapes come from a vineyard in the Barolo commune, so this is no longer labeled Bussia Soprano. 2,000 cases made.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
