Scenically set on top of Monforte d’alba with a sweeping view of the majestic Alps, Conterno Fantino is one of the leading producers of the area. They organically farmed 27 hectares. The philosophy is based on a modern approach promoting respect for the environment (biodynamic principles for vineyard management, solar panels and geothermal systems in the cellars), and ambitious wine making. The resulting wines are enticing, dense, deep, and elegant, amongst the most refined in Piedmont, sought-after by wine collectors around the world.

Organic / biodynamic. Blend of Barbera grown in Ginestra, Bussia Sottana, Mosconi, Pajana and Ornati. Hand harvested. Indigenous yeasts. Ten day fermentation/maceration in horizontal rotating stainless steel fermenters. Aged for 7 months in French oak barrels, plus an additional 4 months in the bottle before release.

Crushed flowers and bright red/purplish fruit give the Barbera its effusive, charming personality. This mid-weight, open-knit Barbera is a fine choice for near-term drinking.
