Prestigious Barbera d’Alba produced with grapes which come from the “Cascina Francia” vineyard, collocated in the district of Serralunga d’Alba: the grapes follow a traditional procedure. The colour of this Barbera is as the other, an intense ruby red one, while the smell reveals rich and complex perfumes with scents of dog rose, currant, cherry, blackberry, spices, tobacco and aromatic grass. Furthermore, it is a complex, balanced and elegant wine, while the taste is fresh and contains a correct minerality. This Barbera is perfect if drunk in combination with first typical courses of Piedmont, red meat, salami and seasoned cheeses.


Conterno Giacomo

This cave was founded by Giacomo Conterno in 1900 in Monforte d’Alba: Giacomo’s parents were farmers. Later, Giacomo’s son, Giovanni, was responsible about the Barolo’s bottling, while in 1934 Giovanni’s son created the famous Barolo Monfortino and thanks to him the family’s winery purchased the Cascina Francia, in Serralunga d’Alba. The last descending and the present manger of Conterno’s cave is Roberto, who produces wines following traditional procedures, by giving attention to wines’ production modalities. According to Roberto’s philosophy, it is not necessary submit the wine to forcings, but it is essential exalt what the nature has given to man in an excellent way.
