2013 Barolo Offer

Diego Conterno has been making wine on his own in Monforte d’Alba since 2003. His estate comprises 7.5 hectares, 1.5 of which is the ‘grand cru’ site Ginestra. He was joined in 2010 by his son Stefano, and that year they bottled the Ginestra separately for the first time. In 2014 they converted to organic viticulture, and added a new wing to their winery. The winemaking here is very traditional: static fermenters and ever larger barrels (botte grande) for maturation.

Monforte is known for wines of depth, structure and length – we all know what that can mean – but the painstaking care in the vineyard and gentle winemaking bring out the elegance of the terroir.


Mauro Mascarello took over from his father in 1967. His estate has 15ha, with many of the village’s famous vineyards. His jewel is Monprivato, and considerable care and attention is lavished on it. For many years he experimented with different fermentation techniques, but in the end he returned to the traditional ways, with the crucial difference of maceration time being cut from sixty to thirty days.
Castiglione Falletto is famous for perfumed, velvety wines, and you will find that in spades here.

Available en primeur. Shipping in early 2018
