Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"This beautiful Chardonnay opens to spicy intensity with dried apricot and tropical fruit, all presented with heightened intensity and volume. The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Langhe Chardonnay Bussiador is ripe and round with hints of yellow candy and ripe fruit. These opulent and softly voluptuous fruit flavors wrap smoothly over the palate. The finish is silky and fine with distant hints of crushed stone or mineral. Some 8,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner (23rd Jul 2020)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Plenty of white peaches and sliced lemons with some very ripe mangoes. Full-bodied. Creamy. Hints of praline. So delicious. Drink now." - (14 May, 2020)
