Without doubt, their best CTP so far. Explosive fruit flavours, dense tannins and vivid acidity, complimented by very clever and integrated oak treatment. Easy another 10 years here.

the golden glow of saffron-fueled Milanese risotto - delicate yet sinfully creamy - a dish that dates back to 1574 inspired by the artist who worked on the stained glass of the #Duomo of #Milan - perfect with affordable cherry/earthy/peppery #AldoConterno Conca Tre Pile Barbera d'Alba '14 #wine #Milano #Italia #Italy

Lighter than usual but it's red fruit potpourri is impossible not to adore. Great freshness in the elegant yet substantial finish. All new oak, but none of it evident. Impressive.

Open since Friday night, still deep and thrusting flavor layers with an extra dimension from the air that adds a layer of complexity on the edges from the slight deterioration from oxygen. As per Barbera the tannin are silky and almost non-existent like they are absorbed completely into the wine. Awesome and if you can find it, 2010 or 2013 don't hesitate. More expensive but the massive quality makes up for it. One of the best wines of pleasure I have had so far in 2017.

Gorgeous texture and depth, notes of tobacco balanced with purple and red floral and fruit aromas.

Refreshing and complex, but not as good as Giaccomo. Better on day 2.
