Website : www.conternofantino.it

The future looks great for Conterno Fantino – Guido Fantino has now introduced his son Fabio into the business so there are now two generations in this outstanding boutique winery. The first cru was the Ginestra vineyard, one of the oldest named vineyards in Barolo Monforte, which has now developed to a 64-acre estate including vines in Bricco Bastia, and a fantastic state-of-the-art winery with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Monprà, a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera with a dash of Cabernet, still blazes a trail in the Langhe Rosso class.

Other wines by this producer

  1. 2007 Barolo Vigna del Gris DOCG, Conterno Fantino

    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.

  2. 2008 Barolo DOCG, Sori Ginestra, Conterno Fantino

    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.

  3. 2008 Barolo Vigna del Gris DOCG, Conterno Fantino

    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.

  4. 2012 Ginestrino Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC, Conterno Fantino

    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.

  5. 2011 Monprà Nebbiolo/Barbera Langhe Rosso DOC, Conterno Fantino

    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.

  8. 2013 Dolcetto d'Alba DOC, Bricco Bastia, Conterno Fantino

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

  9. 2010 Barolo, Vigna Mosconi DOCG, Conterno Fantino

    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.
