Winemaker's Notes:

Complex layers of dark fruit, oak, spice, and a hint of leather. Full-bodied and velvety. Supple and round.

About Conterno Fantino:

This classic Langhe winery, founded in 1982, testifies to the talent and vision of Claudio Conterno and his friend and partner, Guido Fantino, who styles the wines. French oak barriques and new wood marry Piedmont’s own, blockbuster structure, opulent, tightly knit texture, magnificent tannins and rich, layered flavors. Today, the property comprises 57 acres under vine. Soil composition is sand, silt, clay; gradient of slopes 20-35%, and vine age is 15-40 years. Conterno Fantino's initial nucleus is cru Ginestra: a historical one for Barolo, documented as far back as the 1800s. In 1989, Guido and Claudio acquired terrain from the nearby area of Bricco Bastia, within the commune of Monforte d'Alba, where they eventually built a state-of-the-art new winery inaugurated in 1994. This location is scenically set, dominating the most ancient section of Monforte and overlooked by the majestic sweep of the Alps. Conterno Fantino exclusively employs geothermal energy: less CO2, more respect for the environment.
