16 units available online.
Product description

Intense and enveloping notes, blood orange, plum, and mineral aromas. In the mouth, voluminous with sweet tannins, finishing with an inviting licorice note.

98+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Barolo Conteisa is a noble wine, with angular and drying tannins, as well as more mineral expression. Notes of medicinal herbs, crushed stones, and pure cherry lead to a wine that is more restrained right now but will be fantastic. Through the palate, it has compact but wonderful concentration and a driving structure and is more herbaceous, savory, and mineral than fruity and floral. It is outstanding. Drink the 2020s while waiting for the 2019s.

97 Points - Vinous

The 2019 Barolo Conteisa is stunning. A wine of grace, power and finesse, the 2019 is immediately captivating. Crushed flowers, cinnamon, red berry fruit and rose petal are all beautifully lifted, all wrapped by silky La Morra tannins that add to its finesse. Readers will find an exquisite Barolo endowed with tremendous class. The 2019 is just sublime.

94 Points - James Suckling

A powerful and tannic wine with mushroom, forest flower, bark, and black tea aromas and flavors. Full and chewy. This is a young nebbiolo that needs time to soften.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

Earthy and spicy, with core cherry and raspberry flavors accented by iron, white pepper and eucalyptus. Firm and linear, this ends with a sinewy feel, despite its superb balance and refined texture. Superlong aftertaste.
