($86; the Conterno '99 Barolos were bottled this past August) Medium red. Plum, redcurrant, smoke, minerals and tobacco on the nose. Very ripe, sweet and layered; consistent from start to finish. Superb vinosity gives this superb delineation and thrust. Offers impressive spine for a Barolo normale Finishes with serious, firm tannins and terrific length.

Medium ruby. The 1999 Bussia displays an attractive, floral nose long with delicate suggestions of menthol, licorice, tobacco, tar and sweet fruit with excellent length in a soft, accessible style. The more advanced flavors indicate this wine has entered its early maturity and with some air it is enjoyable today. In the past I have found this wine to be at the peak of its expression between ages 10 and 15.

Wonderful bottle of wine. Smooth, silky taste with cherry overtone. Good balance and acidity.
