FAQ

What makes Barolo Conterno Monfortino unique?

The Barolo Conterno Monfortino is one of Italy’s most celebrated wines. It’s made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes from the best plots of the Francia vineyard. The grapes undergo a long fermentation process and are aged for seven years in large Slavonian oak casks, resulting in a wine of extraordinary depth, complexity, and longevity.

How does the Barolo Conterno Fantino compare to other Barolo wines?

The Barolo Conterno Fantino is known for its power and elegance. The wines are made in a more modern style, with more emphasis on ripe fruit flavors and new French oak aging. Despite this modern touch, they still maintain the structure and aging potential that Barolo wines are famous for.

What can I expect from the Barolo Conterno Vigna del Gris?

The Barolo Conterno Vigna del Gris is a single-vineyard Barolo that showcases the terroir of the Monforte d’Alba region. The wines are known for their richness, depth, and balance, with a beautiful mix of dark fruit flavors, floral notes, and mineral undertones.

How does the Barolo Conterno 2017 vintage taste?

2017 was a hot and dry year in Barolo, leading to wines that are more approachable in their youth. The Barolo Conterno 2017 will likely show ripe fruit flavors with softer tannins and a more immediate appeal, although it will still have the ability to age.

Is the Barolo Conterno 2018 a good vintage to buy?

The 2018 vintage was cooler and more classic than the 2017, resulting in wines with excellent balance, freshness, and complexity. The Barolo Conterno 2018 is likely to be a vintage that will reward patience, with the potential to evolve and improve over many years in the cellar.
