Tasting notes
This wine is ruby garnet in colour with an intensely perfumed nose characteristic of this vineyard. Aromas of aniseed, cherries, roses and ripe plums give way to an elegant, mineral character on the palate. The tannins are sweet, concentrated and powerful, with a hint of cinnamon to lift the tightly-packed, smoky fruit. Long and perfumed to the end, it shows liquorice and rose petal notes on the finish

Barolo DOCG Colonnello

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 and the family now produces 80,000 bottles rather than the 200,000 produced in 1998.
Based in the village of Monforte d’Alba, in the heart of Barolo, the Conterno family’s 25 hectares of vineyard are situated almost exclusively on the hill of Bussia, one of the most sought after sites in the area. The Colonnello vineyard is one of their best vineyards.
The grapes were fermented in stainless-steel tanks at temperatures of up to 32°C. Maceration lasted 30 days. The wine remained in stainless steel for four to five months and then it was transferred to oak casks where it aged for 28 months before bottling.
