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. 100% Nebbiolo from Sori Ginestra and Castelletto crus. Aged ten months in used French oak barrels. Ginestra is a historical cru of 10 hectares situated at an altitude between 300
and 350 metres, arranged on steep slopes, prevalently exposed to the south and in part to the south east. it is divided in several subzones. Sori Ginestra is the vineyard located right below the Hamlet of Ginestra, between Roddoli della Ginestra and Cascina Pajana. Forty year old vines rooted in a steep full south facing compact terroir composed of silt (50%), sand (28%), and clay (22%). Castelletto is a large and steep vineyard located between Monforte d’Alba and the frazione of Perno along the confines of Serralunga d’Alba. Vigna Pressenda is a subzone of Castellotto, right in the middle of the Hill, that features older marls from Lequio Formation.

Bold, racy and perfumed, with lovely depth. Sweet floral notes meld into a core of dark stone fruits, lavender, menthol and sage. Firm, incisive tannins support expressive pine, black cherry and spice notes. This is a baby Barolo that can be enjoyed now.
