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.
The Barolo "Bussia" is a full-bodied red wine, macerated on the skins for one month and aged the rest of the time in oak barrels. Elegant and intense notes of sweet spices, red fruits and leather introduce a structured and decisive sip, with soft tannins and long and persistence finish. James Suckling 96/100 on 2013 vintage.
