Tasting Notes:
rated: November 9, 2011 , Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate)
91 points "The 2006 Barolo Riva del Bric is a pretty wine laced with plums, menthol and spices, all of which come together in a wine that is rather brooding in personality. The wine gains richness and body as it sits in the glass, showing terrific persistence and depth. This new bottling from a vineyard in Monforte shows a darker, more balsamic profile than Conterno’s wines from Ginestra, with less overall depth, but then again that may be an unfair comparison as Ginestra is one of the finest vineyards in Italy. Still, this is a very promising new entry from Conterno. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. " Best 2014-2024

93 points " Score: 93 Release Price: $55Country: ItalyRegion: PiedmontIssue: Mar 31, 2011 Fine harmony and finesse mark this floral-, cherry- and licorice-flavored red. This is firm and tight, yet shows excellent potential for the future. Hints of menthol and especially mineral push the finish. Best from 2013 through 2030. 160 cases imported. –BS" Best 2013-2030
