Poderi Aldo Conterno
Aldo Conterno, who recently passed away, founded this fine family estate in 1969. Today his sons Franco, Stefano and Giacomo, who uphold the long time reputation of their estate, run it. The family vineyards in the Bussia de Monforte area – Romirasco, Cicala and Colonnello historically produce some of the most classic and age worthy Barolos, with the star being the Granbussia Riserva. This legacy has been preserved with a slight restyling, resulting in Nebbiolos that have become more powerful and toastier over the years, despite of being aged in large barrels. The estate is also home to other traditional grape varieties, such as barbera, dolcetto and freisa, and a small amount of chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and merlot.
