Critic's Notes

Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media

“Conterno's 1978 Cicala is fresh, vibrant and full of life. It displays a beautiful nose of roses, spices and licorice, along with flavors of dark macerated cherries and tar on a structured frame. Though still youthful, this superbly well-balanced wine is hard to resist today. One of the finest wines I have tasted from this producer.”

John Gilman - View From the Cellar

“The 1978 Cicala is outstanding and in full bloom ... soaring from the glass in a mélange of red and black cherries, roasted gamebirds, forest floor, dried roses, and tarry tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and exquisitely balanced, with a beautiful core of fruit, melting tannins, well-integrated acidity, and excellent length and grip on the complex finish. This is just a beautiful bottle of Barolo ....”
