Conterno Fantino

Conterno Fantino
Website : www.conternofantino.it

Conterno Fantino stands at the summit of 21st century Barolo, both literally and figuratively. From its stunning winery atop the Monforte d’Alba hill, this alliance of the Fantino and Conterno families produces a range of wines that are both unmistakably modern in approach, and also utterly respectful of the region’s wine-growing heritage.

Established by Guido Fantino and brothers Diego and Claudio Conterno, the business now also includes Guido’s son, Fabio, ensuring the involvement of a second generation in a winery that has already accumulated a sizeable heritage. That heritage is centred on vineyards that balance the need for Nebbiolo with plantings of Barbera, Dolcetto, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The 23 hectares have developed from Ginestra, one of the oldest named vineyards in this part of the world.

The use of short maceration and French barriques places Conterno Fantino in the vanguard of Barolo modernism, with power and backbone to support the trademark texture, elegance and freshness. Meanwhile, Monprà’s blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera and a pinch of Cabernet Sauvignon takes Langhe Rosso to new levels.

Other wines by this producer

  1. Barolo S.Ginestra 09 C.Fantino 6/75

    A complex wine with classic aromas of melting tar and violets, lots of figs and rich notes of chamois leather. Pretty complex, of medium weight and with a very fine finish.

  2. Monpra 11 C. Fantino 12/75
    redwine

    Monpra 11 C. Fantino 12/75

    (12x75cl)

    Its deep colour is a reminder of the limited yields of the estate, while the richness of the well defined and elegant aromas tell of a perfect microclimate. All the density and extreme warmth on the palate have been perfectly assimilated by the oak and the finish is almost glossy and endless.

  3. Langhe Chardonnay 12 Bastia 6/75

    Delicate nose with fragrant hints of banana, butter, honey and yellow flowers, well-knit by unobtrusive wood. Soft, savoury and nicely crisp on the mouth.

  4. Barolo Vigna Mosconi 10 C. Fantino 6/75

    A deep garnet ruby red, with a powerful, lingering nose conjuring up fruits of the forest and dog-roses. A dry taste, backed with body.

  5. Monpra 12 C. Fantino 1/1.5
    redwine

  6. Barbera Vignota 13 C-F 6/75
    redwine

    Barbera Vignota 13 C-F 6/75

    (6x75cl)

    A wine ruby red in appearance with cherry reflections. Elegantly scented with pleasant notes of cherry and sour cherry. Very rich extractions on the palate, persistent but simultaneously soft.

  7. Ginestrino Nebbiolo d'Alba 13 6/75

    Very Lively ruby colour with garnet reflections; persistent and appealing bouquet with rose and peach notes. Soft and rounded on the palate with good structure and mature tannin.

  9. Barolo Vigna del Gris 11 C. Fantino 6/75

    A behemoth of a nose, concentrated, complex and commanding. The palate is full and structured but surprisingly well rounded with black fruit, liquorice and mocha flavours, hints of rose petal and a defiant finish.

  10. Dolcetto Bastia 14 C. Fantino 6/75

    Mouthwatering acid structure and agreeably soft in texture. Displays lovely cherry, berry and floral flavours, with an earthy, barnyard note. Ready to drink.

    A complex wine with classic aromas of melting tar and violets, lots of figs and rich notes of chamois leather. Pretty complex, of medium weight and with a very fine finish.
