1999 Aldo Conterno, Barolo, Cicala (RT95) Slow O’ed early in the day. Right out of the starting gate this Cicala threw off a gorgeous nose layered with brown sugar, sous bois and classic earth-driven elements of the Bussia Cru. With time in the glass, it picked up velocity, gaining elements of freshness. Clearly showing the best aromatics thus far of the night, the mouth feel didn’t quite live up to the bouquet, but then again it was no slouch. Big acidity, a full mouthfeel and a long finish ensure this is just starting to show its full potential. Drink 2014-2039+
