2011 Barolo Riva del Bric Paolo Conterno

The “fabulous” 2011 Barolo Riva del Bric by Paolo Conterno is a huge-scoring offering from a family-run vineyard with nearly 150 years experience. For Suckling, the 2011s from Barolo “please in every sense of the word” and “are flamboyant and intense with lots of fruit and ripe tannins” (Sept 2015). In this context, the Riva del Bric is a show-stopping wine and awarded 97 points, it is one of the big winners, worth seeking out.


What’s more, the 2011 comes from impressive lineage; Conterno produces Barolos that are rich, structured and powerful with fantastic potential to age in bottle, making them perfect for both drinker and collector alike. A touch overlooked to date, the best 2011s from Barolo are delicious, open and accessible wines that, in an earlier drinking style, will be massively enjoyable from delivery and for at least another decade.

“This is fabulous Barolo with burnt orange, blackberry, meat, earth, and fresh herb. Full-bodied, round and velvety. So flavorful and crazy. Drink now. Why wait? But it will age wonderfully.” Sept 2015, jamessuckling.com Drink now+

Founded in 1886 this is a family owned winery with an impressive history of quality. The wines here are classically styled, pure and laser-sharp. They also age particularly well. The Ginestra and, of course, the Ginestra Riserva, are the jewels of this estate.

“There is a purity to proprietor Giorgio Conterno’s wines that I find incredibly appealing. Antonio Galloni
