Romirasco , DOCG
2006 Barolo Bussia "Romirasco" DOCG/b, Poderi Aldo Conterno
Rich and round, this lush style is both supple and intense, displaying a strong mineral and iron edge to its plum and black cherry flavors. A cascade of sweet spice and fruit takes it out as the structure and fruit intertwine.
One of the most famous Barolo crus from the lightest soil. Classically structured but atypically lighter-styled. Red berries, violets, roses and lots of silk.
Good deep, saturated red. Wild cherry, caramel, licorice and minerals on the nose; an essence of Barolo. A compellingly sweet, opulent '06 with captivating minerality giving definition and verve to the very rich middle palate. The explosive finish features outstanding vibrancy and huge toothdusting tannins that reach the front teeth. The Romirasco vines date back to 1937, according to Giacomo. A great showing today.
