Aldo Conterno Barolo 2008

Availability: In stock

Beautiful ruby colour, the 2008 is fresh, pure and lifted with a touch of smoke. The palate is ripe and full with good depth, lots of tannin and excellent balance. The finish is long with fantastic mineral character. A rare find from one of Barolo's most renowned producers!

More information:

Aldo Conterno is one of the historic names of Italian wine. The Conterno family has been making wine in Monforte since at least the 1700s.

Aldo's grandfather, Giovanni Conterno, founded his own winery in 1908, which was then run by his son Giacomo. After a stint in the USA in the 1950s, Aldo worked with his older brother Giovanni in this winery until he decided to strike out on his own in 1969. Aldo's three sons now make the wine (Stefano) and run the business (Franco and Giacomo). Over the years, production has been deliberately reduced in order to increase quality. From the same 25 hectares of 60 year old vines, the family now produces 80,000 bottles rather than the 180,000 made in 1998.
