The Wines of Lazio: There’s Potential Gold in Those Hills

There is no Italian wine region that frustrates me more than Lazio, an area I know especially well, as it’s where I have spent the majority of my adult life. The good news is that, like elsewhere in Italy, the new generation that is in the process of assuming the helm of family estates throughout the region appears to be finally moving in the right direction.

2015 Damiano Ciolli Cesanese di Olevano Romano Superiore Silene, 92 points

A bright and perfumed red with aromas of raspberry, blood orange, field herbs and faded flowers. Turns dense and juicy, with flavors of ripe red fruit and delicate aromatic herbs. Lovely balance and soft tannins leave a suave mouthfeel behind on the long, resonating finish. (ID)

Three Gems from Giacomo Conterno

What a pleasure it is to revisit these three super-classic Barolos from Conterno. As profound as the Conterno wines are today, there is something special about the wines from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, when Giovanni Conterno was at the height of his powers.
