2010 Daniele Conterno 'Sette Anni' Riserva Barolo
Certified Organic · VLQ
Daniele is the grandson of the legendary Giacomo Conterno. This 10-year-old Riserva is the selection of only the finest fruit from their vineyards, aged for an astounding seven years in botti (large barrels); it is best enjoyed after at least three hours' decanting and will continue to age in bottle for another 25 years, minimum.
It also contains a secret: where the "Sette Anni" is typically a blend of top vineyards, including Bussia, in 2010 the fruit is 100% Bussia vineyard, an astounding fact considering that the Bussia vineyard is regarded as one of the finest vineyards not only in Barolo, but in the world.
