Taut, structured, layered and serious-minded yet aromatic, perfumed and enchanting. Outstandingly pure fruit with great focus and precision. This is wonderfully textured with perfect tannins which are polished yet grip the palate and frame the concentrated fruit at the core. Super fresh and vivacious yet elegant and refined. This is stunning.
Reviews & Scores
The 2010 Conteisa is a wine of extreme finesse. Flowers, sweet red berries, hard candy, mint and licorice all emerge from the glass, supported by silky, polished tannins. Today the 2010 impresses for its fabulous, crystalline purity and striking overall balance. The style is aromatic, lifted and all about elegance. The 2010 has only recently been bottled. I won't be surprised if it is even better in another few years. Conteisa is mostly Nebbiolo with a dollop of Barbera, from the Cerequio vineyard in La Morra.
