Cuvée presentation

This cuvée is produced in the favoured vineyards of Cicala, not far from Monforte d'Alba. The grapes are harvested by hand in mid-October before being vinified in stainless steel vats. They are left to steep with their skins for the month-long alcoholic fermentation process. Lastly, the wine receives 28 months' élevage in barrels. During tasting, its bouquet may appear somewhat understated, and therefore austere. In the mouth, however, the wine is a fresh, mineral feast enhanced by a few spicy touches. It is a wine made for keeping, and can therefore be laid down for around twenty years.

Information about domain Aldo Conterno

In the 19th century, Giovanni Conterno joined his father on the family domaine in Monforte d'Alba (between Turin and the coast). This domaine was an export success from the very outset with its Barolo Reserve, which was only produced in the best years. In the late 1930s, Giovanni handed the baton to his son Giacomo, who was followed in turn by his sons Giovanni and Aldo. However, a few years later, and after some time spent in California, Aldo decided to set up his own domaine, Poderi Aldo Conterno, in 1969 (also in Monforte d'Alba). Today, the domaine spans 25 hectares in the heart of the Barolo wine region and produces renowned wines.
