1978 Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala (ex-Francia Cellar)

  • AG94

In 1978, the late Aldo Conterno was very much a traditionalist, aging his Barolo in classic large botti. In the Mystique of Barolo, he was quoted as saying he didn't start shortening his fermentations until the 1980s, and it wasn't until the 1990s that smaller barrels were introduced.

The 1978 vintage was arguably the high point of Aldo's career (as it was for many of his contemporaries in Barolo).

Given that the elite 1978 cuvées of every other top traditionalist are now priced above $1000 a bottle—and are virtually impossible to find in any significant quantity—consider our price to be a gift.
