The 2008 Paolo Conterno Riva Del Bric Barolo has appealing notes of cedar, anise and pomegranate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine, with forward acidity, good tannic structure (decant for30+ min) and a long, silky finish. This wine should be enjoyed on its own; drink from now till 2025. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91-92 pts - recommended for its quality. Tasted May/13.
