96pts James Suckling

95pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate

 

James Suckling:  "Lots of beautiful aromas of strawberries, cherries, oranges and white chocolate follow through to a full body with a fantastic, dense and chewy mouthfeel and a long finish. So precise. Starting drinking in 2022." Jul 2017

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "This is a balanced and homogenous wine with a softly caressing nature. It offers aromas of citrus, summer fruit and even a touch of watermelon pulp. This wine is usually considered the more immediate of Gaja's two new Barolo wines, yet this vintage surely needs extra time to evolve."  Jun 2017

Winery:  "Often considered the most elegant of the Barolos, Conteisa delivers power and structure for those collectors looking for a classic experience. 

On the palate, the wine is as delicate and elegant as it is on the nose, with soft notes of red berry, tangerine, and licorice. The tannins are well integrated to the fruit with great concentration and freshness. Fermentation: Fermentation with the skins occurs in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures for three weeks."
