Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barolo Arione 2016


Lobenberg: Ein absoluter Power-Barolo von Roberto Conterno. Überwiegend in den 60er Jahren gepflanzter Weinberg in Serralunga. Lehm und Eisen. Nur 3 Fässer. In der Kraft eher ein Konkurrent zum Cerretta, aber etwas reicher und wärmer hier auf Grund der Lage. Eine Bereichrung mit eigener Stilistik. Großer Wein. 97/100


Galloni über: Barolo Arione

-- Galloni: The 2016 Barolo Arione is a sort of synthesis between the Cerretta and Francia. It has the red fruit profile and floral overtones of the former with a feeling of structure that recalls the later. Arione Barolos always have a distinctly wild, feral quality strong on iron and mineral notes, which is very much the case here. Logically, the 2016 needs a bit of time to soften, but it is super-impressive. It is perhaps a bit less polished than the Francia, but it also has a phenomenally long, classically austere finish. It’s the sort of wine I would like to spend a few hours with. In 2016, there is no Monfortino, so all of the Arione wine is in this bottling, unlike 2015, when a portion was blended into Monfortino. 96/100
