History

Langhe Chardonnay DOC “Bujet” 2019 Franco Conterno 75 cl is a rosé wine produced by the Franco Conterno farm. The Cascina Sciulun where the Conterno Franco winery is located is an ancient farm typical of the Piedmontese Langa architectural tradition. The farm is located in a hamlet of Bussia di Monforte d’Alba. The building was built in the mid-eighteenth century and expanded around the 1940s, and has always belonged to the Conterno family. Franco’s grandfather, Pietro, began to allocate the 18 hectares of land to the production of Nebbiolo, initially to be sold to other wineries in the area. The company has passed generationally first to Pietro’s son, Giacomo, and subsequently to Franco, who has been running the company together with his wife Vilma since 1995 and has given today’s approach to quality production. Today we also see the inclusion of the two new recruits, the sons of Franco Daniele and Andrea, who have brought a desire to do things and a breath of fresh air. The company produces with organic certification.

Grapes used

100% Chardonnay

Production method

The vineyards are located on land adjacent to the estate, rich in clay and sand, capable of giving structure and complexity to the final product. After harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and pressed and the must obtained undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel containers. The wine then ages in steel tanks for 4 months before being placed on the market. The company has chosen for this product the screw cap (also known as Stelvin cap) able to better safeguard the aroma and freshness of the wine until uncorking.

Alcohol content

13%

Tasting notes

At sight it has an intense and bright straw yellow color. On the nose notes of peach, citrus, chamomile flowers, hay and hints of hazelnut. In the mouth full, round, soft and closed by a nice final acidity. Overall fragrant and clean, very well done.

Possible combinations

Franco Conterno Chardonnay is perfect as an aperitif on a warm spring/summer evening. It is perfect for pairing with fresh and creamy cheeses, or with delicate fish dishes or with seafood first courses.

Brand

Conterno

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 up according to the qualitative standards that have always been used.
