Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia ‘Cicala’ 2016

"The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2016 Barolo Bussia Cicala offers a ripe fruit profile with layers of menthol and medicinal herb. The finish is beautiful, long and chalky, and you don't get as much alcohol in the Cicala (compared to Romirasco). The fruit is dried and streamlined, and this wine does show good promise for aging. The tannins are beautiful, coating your teeth and palate with no bitter edge. About 6,000 bottles were made". - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Poderi Aldo Conterno Bussiador Langhe Chardonnay 2017

R995.00 inc. VAT
"This beautiful Chardonnay opens to spicy intensity with dried apricot and tropical fruit, all presented with heightened intensity and volume. The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Langhe Chardonnay Bussiador is ripe and round with hints of yellow candy and ripe fruit. These opulent and softly voluptuous fruit flavors wrap smoothly over the palate. The finish is silky and fine with distant hints of crushed stone or mineral. Some 8,000 bottles were made." -Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Miani Sauvignon Saurint 2020

"The 2020 Sauvignon Saurint is airy and delicate in the glass, showing dried herbs, dusty florals and hints of sweet spice. This is round and silky in texture, with citrus-tinged acids and tart green apples that add a push and pull of tension. The 2020 leaves the palate with a sour melon concentration while tapering off incredibly long with hints of ginger and lime. I love the vertical lift here and how the Sauvignon Saurint demonstrates both grace and power." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Miani Bianco 2020

"Fresh spring flowers, melon, and wet slate create a dusty and sweet perfumed bouquet as the 2020 Bianco opens in the glass. This rich, drenching the palate with a concentration of ripe apples and peaches, as salty minerals provide balance. It finishes incredibly vibrant yet potent, leaving pretty topical tones through the finale. This racy vintage of the Miani Bianco, a blend of Ribolla, Malvanisa and Sauvignon Blanc." - Erico Guido, Vinous
