Paolo Conterno Barolo Riva del Bric 2015
The vines that bore fruit for the 2015 Barolo Riva del Bric are a bit younger in this site compared to those used for the Ginestra. This Barolo is great, but it is without the same complexity you get in the other one. It's a more sensible expression of Nebbiolo, with thick layers of black fruit followed by tar, moist earth and savory tobacco. It shows similar density and thickness of fiber that you get in the Ginestra cru, only the wine's complexity is less articulate and nuanced. Drink it in the medium term after three to 3-5 of bottle aging.
