Bottle Description

Aldo Conterno is one of the historic names of Italian wine. The Conterno family has been making wine in Monforte since at least the 1700s. Aldo's grandfather, Giovannni Conterno, founded his own winery in 1908 which was then run by his son, Giacomo. After a stint in the USA in the 1950s, Aldo worked with his older brother Giovanni in this winery until he decided to strike out on his own in 1969. Aldo's three sons now make the wine (Stefano) and run the business (Franco and Giacomo). Over the years, production has been deliberately reduced and the family now produces 80,000 bottles rather than the 200,000 produced in 1998.
Tasting Notes: Deep red with a purple sheen. The fine nose shows floral and herbaceous notes with subtle red fruits. Great tannins, supple and with great depth, with lovely intensity of flavour and a touch of minerality, this Barolo is a classic example of the Nebbiolo grape at its best.
