Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet with ruby hues, with a rich, fruity and persistent bouquet of rose petals, brushwood and berries this wine is full bodied, luscious, and austere on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
Aromas of ripe strawberry, violet, rose petal and sandalwood follow through a full body, round and very silky tannins and a long and linear finish. The tannin texture caresses for minutes. Better in 2020.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
This wine’s floral scents and high-toned red fruit flavors feel rosy and lifted; they seem to have density without weight. Flavors of licorice and anise accent the cherry and plum fruit, with cool notes of menthol that direct the flavors in an upward arc. The ferrous tannins show some roundness and baking-spice notes from two years in French oak barriques, but the red fruit flavors feel vibrant and transparent, finishing with a clean sensation.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Though dense and chewy, this features a core of sweet cherry, currant, licorice and tobacco flavors. The tannins are assertive, but all the elements are well-proportioned. Best from 2018 through 2030.

Conterno Fantino, Italy
Conterno Fantino Mattia Vezzola Winery Image
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.
