Monfortino is not only one of the greatest Barolos, but also one of the finest wines in the world. The Conterno family has been making wine in Piedmont since the early 1900's, but it wasn’t until the 1920's when Giacomo Conterno started producing a Barolo Riserva that was meant to age. He later renamed the wine Monfortino after his hometown of Monforte d’Alba. In the late 1950's, Giacomo handed over the winery to his two sons, Giovanni and Aldo, who had already worked with their father for many years. The brothers split up in 1969 with Giovanni staying on in the family business and Aldo departing to start his own winery. In 1974, Giovanni purchased the Cascina Francia vineyard in Serralunga, famed for its high altitude and calcareous soil layered with sandstone. It is the ideal terroir for producing long-lived Barolo with profound complexity, finesse, and concentration. The modern day Monfortino is produced from a special selection of the best fruit from the Cascina Francia vineyard whereas prior to purchasing Cascina Francia, fruit for Monfortino was still sourced from the vineyard. When Giovanni passed away in 2004, his son Roberto, who had been working full time at the estate since 1988, took over the reins; he continues to make ageworthy, traditional Barolo wines that faithfully carry on the tradition of this legendary estate. We are honored to host this stellar vertical of Monfortino going back to 1961.
