    Winemaker Notes

    This is produced with Dolcetto grapes grown in our vineyards in Località Bussia Soprana at Monforte Alba. It is aged for eight months in stainless steel vats and then refined for six months in the bottle before being put on sale. Ruby-red, with purple reflections, it has a fresh, intense and fruity perfume, and a dry, full and balanced flavour. It has an alcoholic content of 12 - 13 degrees, and 5 - 8%o of total acidity. It should be served at 18 degrees, with hors-doeuvres, noodles, salami, poultry, and cheese.

    The story of Poderi Aldo Conterno, one of the elite, historic Barolo producers, is a tale of great passion for winemaking that winds back across generations and crosses international borders. While the Langhe Rosso, Chardonnay “Bussiador”, Barbera d’Alba “Conca Tre Pile” and Nebbiolo “Favot” represent a nod to modern winemaking techniques, the Barolo wines remain firmly in the traditionalist camp, aged in large Slavonian-oak botte before bottling. Only indigenous yeasts and traditional fermenting techniques are used. These are clean, polished and ethereal wines of great elegance that are guaranteed to offer years of sublime drinking while being terrific collector’s items.

    Over the past decade, the estate has worked hard to ensure their place among the pantheon of hallowed Barolo producers, decreasing production by well over 50% through extreme triage in the vineyards: their harvest teams threatened mutiny at first over bunches that would normally have been harvested but that Conterno knew would be better to cut early to favor optimal development in the remaining bunches. The results of this rigorous approach have already been noticed and highly praised by the international press. The wines are remarkably approachable, characterized by particularly sweet fruit in their youth, as well as spice and vanilla notes. These are clean, polished and ethereal wines of great elegance that are guaranteed to offer years of sublime drinking while being terrific collector’s items. lity.
