Aldo Conterno Colonnello Barolo 2001
-International Wine Cellar
Aldo Conterno's family has been producing and ageing the great Piedmontese wines for more than five generations. Today the winery, which is situated in Località Bussia Soprana at Monforte d'Alba, still vinifies grapes that come exclusively from its own vineyards in the hills around Alba, in the heart of the Barolo production zone. Our vineyards have a southerly/ south-westerly exposure for the 80%, whereas their altitude is approximatively 480 metres above sea-level. The soil is formed by some strata of more or less compact grey-brown sand, alternated with white and bluish calcareous marls. Rational cultivation techniques, controlled must fermentation, and traditional system of vinification and ageing combine to produce great wines of fine quality.
