Barolo: getting the story right. My post on the Roberto Conterno purchase of Arione for @WineSearcher

price conterno wine monfortinoI learned of Roberto Conterno’s purchase of the historic Barolo cru Arione via Kerin O’Keefe when I met her at a dinner in her honor hosted by Chambers St. Wines owner Jamie Wolff a few weeks ago at Maialino in NYC.
