Still a baby, but drinks beautifully if opened an hour in advance.

2000 Conterno Monfortino Barolo Reserva. Decanted 1.5 hours before serving and it was still opening up. Could easily have decanted this 3 hours in advance. Still, it was approachable and a very elegant wine. Tons of tannin and structure. ACan see how this wine will develop into a superstar. Really plush wine. Dark fruit on the front, oriental spice, cedar and earth notes on the finish.

Still a young pup but enormously enjoyable even now. Will only get better with time.
