Saturated dark-cherry notes, reminiscent of a ripe Burgundy vintage (2015?), Tannins are there, though... but balanced for me. Color on this Langhe is darker than most. Another great Conterno effort.

Just wow. Pop and pour and it disappears! This is beautifully smooth and rich in flavors without any elbows. Amazing! NBI

Super juicy with red sweet cherries, sweet tobacco, savory and much darker in color than I anticipated. Smooth tannins and very easy to drink.

Young. Finish is a little on the tart side but great with rich/fatty foods now. Not as much depth as previous vintages. SS

Deliciously bright berry fruit on this blend of 80% Freisa, 10% Cab Sauv & 10% Merlot. Wonderful depth of earthy spicy undertones and a long soft finish. Great with mushroom pizza and roasted veggies on a casual Tuesday night.

Flat and bland. VA present and tannins in background. Perplexed here :(

Cabernet, Merlot & Freisa. Very interesting blend that tastes a lot like Dolcetto. Resiny fennel and truffle nose and background of black cherries. Medium plus body. Really drinking well.
