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

Grapes used

100% Spanna Nebbiolo

Production method

Vinification takes place in cement tanks, with subsequent aging in large oak barrels for 48 months.

Tasting notes

The wine has an intense garnet red color in the glass. The nose has notes of red undergrowth fruit, such as morello cherries and blueberries, floral notes such as violet, balsamic notes and spices: the main ones include black pepper, tobacco, vanilla, sandalwood, bitter chocolate and licorice. On the palate it is elegant, with personality, harmonious, with soft tannins and a long and complex finish with a balsamic base. There is also a certain minerality and freshness typical of the Spanna variety.

Possible combinations

It goes perfectly with red meat or game dishes, grilled or stewed and also with medium-aged cheeses.
