The “Monfortino” Barolo wine of Conterno is one of the ambassador of the Italian oenology. This wine is grown from the Nebbiolo grapes, cultivated in a favourable area for its climate and soil. This Barolo wine owns a classic and traditional style, while it presents an intense ruby red colour, even if a little transparent. Its smell reveals an intense, various and spiced perfume, with hints of mature red fruit, cherry, licorice, tobacco, truffle and black pepper. Moreover, this wine has a great complexity and personality, besides great body and balance, persistence and elegance. These characteristics make of it excellent in combination with red meats, game, seasoned or fresh cheeses.
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.
