Aldo Conterno Granbussia 1998 –
My contribution to our monthly Saturday wine lunch group, for the Italian event, was the ‘97 and ‘98 Granbussia (sadly, not something I can repeat). I was delighted with both (has anyone ever had a disappointing Granbussia?) and there was much discussion, and fairly evenly split opinions, on which was the better wine. For me, this pipped the ’97 but not by much.
Spices, dense chocolate notes, florals, warm earth. Silky, ever so silky tannins. Dark fruits. Great length. Such a lovely wine to drink now, though the end is not yet in sight. Barolo of the highest quality.
Ruby, thin brick rim. Tar and roses, tight, classical and still bit more fruity, leather and scented, intense. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, lively, cherries, anise and leather, mouthwatering, long finish. 93
