Barolo Night Oslo Round 2
The lineup for the first 6 wines is not bad. (hehe) Keep in mind we did these wines blind, 3 at a time, so the tasting notes reflect what was tasted at the time.
Aldo Conterno Ciacala 1999
Earth tones and toffee on the nose. Older, caramelized, earthy.
Aldo Conterno Ciacala 2012
Floral notes, leather, red berries. Lots of tannins, fruity in the mouth.
Strange. To me it did not taste like a wine from Piemonte.
This round the “winner” was definitely the 1999 Aldo Conterno. Everyone knows I like old Barolo, and this one was no exception.
