Aldo is the blacksheep Conterno who broke away from his father Giacomo's winery back in the day. At the time he was into a more modern style of Barolo, but nowadays the style is largely traditional albeit with a sexy modern touch. The top wine, the Granbussia, goes for close to dime these days, but this humble little nebby with essentially the same sourcing gives the drinker a taste of that for much less. Younger vines and limited skin contact to extract fewer tannins create a well-colored wine with remarkable softness. No cellaring (or saving) required. Drink this juicy baby now.
