Poderi Aldo Conterno Barbera Barbera d'Alba Conca Tre Pile 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This classic chardonnay comes from fruit grown in several Bussia vineyards. It starts its fermentation in stainless-steel then completes it in French-oak barriques. It then ages in 100% new French-oak barriques for 12 months.The “Bussiador” is a wine with a good structure and good body, and so it can stand a long ageing. "Complex, ripe aromas of papaya, citrus peel, quince, marzipan, butterscotch and verbena, with a note of crystallized pineapple emerging with air. Dense, layered and quite dry, with the oak element giving way to purer mid-palate fruit. Fat and silky but not a powerful style. Finishes with a note of nutty oak and fresh acidity..." IWC 12/11

Aldo Conterno is known as the “King of Barolo” in Italy. Poderi Aldo Conterno is situated in Monforte d'Alba on the prized Bussia Soprano vineyard, in the heart of the Barolo region. The Conterno family has been producing and aging the great Piemontese wines for more than five generations. Aldo left his legendary brother at his father's cellar (the Giacomo Conterno estate) in 1969 to pursue his own winemaking interests and reputation, creating the wines of Poderi Aldo Conterno in the "Favot" cellar. The estate exclusively vinifies its own 25 hectacres of grapes. The Conterno brothers parted ways back in the late sixties to create their own styles of Barolo, Giovanni producing the more traditional style of the two. However, Aldo's wines are not considered modern; he still refuses to age them in small barriques. The wines are more fruit driven than the earthy wines of the Giacomo Conterno estate across town in Monforte. Aldo Conterno’s corporate policy of producing only the highest quality wines while mixing tradition with innovation. Read less
