Description

History

The Giacomo Conterno winery was founded in 1900 in Monforte d’Alba by Giacomo himself, descendant of a family that has been producing wine since the beginning of the last century. A few years later, in 1912, his son Giovanni would bottle the first Barolo, a rarity at the time as the wine was mainly sold in barrels or demijohns. In 1924 the first vintage of Barolo Monfortino will be produced, so called in honor of the place of origin. 40 years later, in 1974, Cascina Francia in Serralunga d’Alba was purchased; this area is particularly suited to the production of Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes and agriculture will be set according to the qualitative standards that have always been used also for the production of Barolo Monfortino.

Grapes used

Barbera 100%

Production method

Vinification in steel barrels. Aging for 20 months in large barrels.

Alcohol content

14%

Tasting notes

Ruby red color and predominant sensations of red fruit are felt on the nose, which gradually fade into slightly more mineral hints towards the end of the olfactory analysis. On the palate, the wine has good muscular body and is balanced, flowing with a pleasant crisp vein that eases its impact on the mouth.

Possible combinations

Ideal pairings with meat dishes, especially grilled or stewed ones, but also with aged cheeses.
