Overview

Grape

Nebbiolo/Barbera

Its Origins

Azienda Agricola Conterno Fantino was established in 1982 by Guido Fantino and Claudio Conterno. The state-of-the art winery is located on top of a hill overlooking the old village of Montforte d'Alba, enjoying an extraordinary view stretching out around the arc of Alps. Conterno Fantino's range comprises a Barolo DOCG from Sori Ginestra, and several DOC wines from Langhe, Barbera d'Alba, Dolcetto d' Alba and a mono-varietal wine (Chardonnay). The style of their Barolo is modern, showing rich aromas and flavours, lush, soft texture and well-rounded tannins.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni (2015 vintage)

"Conterno-Fantino's Nebbiolo/Barbera-based Monprà is terrific in 2015. Plush, deep and inviting, with tons of Barbera fruit front and center, the 2015 packs a real punch. Raspberry jam, spice, new French oak and floral notes are pushed forward in a racy, voluptuous Piedmontese red that will drink well right out of the gate. This is one of the better recent vintages of Monprà that I can remember tasting. Don't miss it."
