Conterno Fantino Barbera d'Alba Vignota 2016

Member Review by jmbrand:

I just had this wine sitting at a nice hotel bar where they actually (gasp), didn't overprice their wines. Very drinkable as a cocktail all by itself. Wonderful nose, lucious black fruits, hint of minerality with bright acidity and a medium finish. Needed to open up a bit, decanting really helped. Great conversation wine.

Conterno Fantino:
The making of high quality vine begin with the grapes. The work carried out in the vineyard ends with the harvest, and the winery takes over.

Intense ruby to garnet colour with perfume, fruity and grassy aromas and notes of ripe cherries.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.Grapes: 100% BarberaRegion: Italy / Piemonte / Monteforte d AlbaMaker: Fabio FantinoNotes: Intense ruby to garnet with perfume, fruity and grassy aromas and notes of ripe cherries.
