Description

History

The Cascina Sciulun in Bussia of Monforte d’Alba houses the Conterno Franco winery, which produces quality wines with organic certification. The farm, owned by the Conterno family, dates back to the mid-18th century and was enlarged in the 1940s. The company has passed from generation to generation up to Franco Conterno, who has been running it since 1995 together with his wife and sons Daniele and Andrea, who have brought about innovation. The production mainly includes Nebbiolo and follows the principles of sustainable agriculture.

Grapes used

Nebbiolo and other local grapes 100%

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 the harvest, the grapes are destemmed and pressed and undergo a cold maceration with the skins for about 5 hours, to allow the extraction of colors while keeping the fruity aromas intact. This process takes place in stainless steel containers; once the fermentation has taken place, after a short period of refinement first in steel and then in the bottle, the finished product is finally placed on the market.

Alcohol content

13%

Tasting notes

Salmon pink color with very bright golden hues. On the nose hints of strawberry, peach and grapefruit, with sensations of eucalyptus and mint leaves. Lively and enveloping in the mouth, rougher and fresher on the finish. Very drinkable thirst-quenching sip.

Possible combinations

Franco Conterno Vino Rosato is perfect as an aperitif on a warm spring/summer evening. It is perfect for pairing with fresh and creamy cheeses or first courses with tomato sauce. Also interesting is the combination with first courses with tomato sauce.

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.
