Located in Monforte d'Alba, Poderi Aldo Conterno is considered one of the finest producers in the region.
Today the company is run by three sons of Aldo : Franco, Stefano and Giacomo who followed in the footsteps of their father carry on the family tradition.
In 1969 they bought the "Favot" farm and founded the estate "Poderi Aldo Conterno".
Rose petals, scorched earth, baking spices and tar hold the juicy, succulent red fruits of this '12 Langhe Nebbiolo in a tender embrace. Pure, precise, beguiling and easy-going, this calling card wine from Aldo Conterno derives from vines aged twenty years or younger, and unsurprisingly, Conterno’s Langhe Nebbiolo looks, smells, feels and tastes more like a Baby Barolo than like a Nebbiolo d’Alba. Rain-spattered violets and lavender, fistfuls of plums and red currants, a dusting of chestnut, sinuous tannins and fantastic density make this wine a winner--and one whose lush mouth-feel makes it drink like a very approachable, barrique-aged Barolo at a fraction of the price.
