Diego Conterno Vini

Stefano Conterno

Diego Conterno has been making wine on his own in Monforte d’Alba since 2003. His estate comprises 7.5 hectares, 2 of which make up 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.

2014 Barolo Ginestra (COND34214A)
Ginestra is a huge vineyard of over 100 hectares, but the Conternos have some of the best bits, comprising poorer grey soils where grapes ripen later than in the rest of the commune. This is another transparent, linear wine, perfumed and fresh, with much more depth and texture than the regular Barolo. The red fruit is cool and crunchy, with notes of smoke and rose petals, and there is a clear mineral spine, very smooth elegant tannins and a long fruity finish.
