The Producer

Poderi Aldo Conterno

Poderi Aldo Conterno

Aldo Conterno, a legend in his own lifetime, has forged a reputation as one of Barolo's very finest producers. Initially he worked alongside his brother Giovanni Conterno before he set up on his own in 1969. Today he is ably assisted by his 3 sons; Stefano, Franco and Giacomo.

Conterno`s vineyards are located in the hills of Bussai in the Monteforte district of Barolo. He produces a wide range of wines, stretching from excellent Dolcettos and Barberas through to Chardonnay-based whites and peerless Barolos. He is most renowned for his single vineyard Barolos which are amongst the finest expressions of Nebbiolo to be found anywhere in the world.

The Grape



Nebbiolo is the grape behind the Barolo and Barbaresco wines and is hardly ever seen outside the confines of Piedmont. It takes its name from "nebbia" which is Italian for fog, a frequent phenomenon in the region.

A notoriously pernickety grape, it requires sheltered south-facing sites and performs best on the well-drained calcareous marls to the north and south of Alba in the DOCG zones of Barbaresco and Barolo.

Langhe Nebbiolo is effectively the ‘second wine’ of Piedmont’s great Barolo & Barbarescos. This DOC is the only way Langhe producers can declassify their Barolo or Barbaresco fruit or wines to make an early-drinking style. Unlike Nebbiolo d’Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo can be cut with 15% other red indigenous varieties, such as Barbera or Dolcetto.

Nebbiolo flowers early and ripens late, so a long hang time, producing high levels of sugar, acidity and tannins; the challenge being to harvest the fruit with these three elements ripe and in balance. The best Barolos and Barbarescos are perfumed with aromas of tar, rose, mint, chocolate, liquorice and truffles. They age brilliantly and the very best need ten years to show at their best.
