Diego Conterno Barolo is a wood-aged red wine made with the native Nebbiolo variety in the DOCG Barolo, in Piedmont (Italy).
Diego Conterno and his son Stefano are the people behind this small but prestigious family winery in the heart of the Langhe, in the town of Monforte d'Alba. Strength, austere precision and personality are clear to see in each of their wines. Wines that reflect the characteristics of the terroir and the grapes.
Diego Conterno Barolo comes from a 1 hectare area lying at 430 metres above sea level. The vines are planted on medium texture clay soils with some tuff and calcareous marls. The vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually in boxes with the grapes selected in the vineyard.
When the Diego Conterno Barolo grapes reach the winery, they ferment in stainless steel tanks with cap plunges for about 30 days. The wine then ages for about 30 months in 500-litre oak barrels.
With extensive experience in the production of traditional Barolos, Diego Conterno Barolo is an intense and persistent wine. A very accessible Nebbiolo that you can open and enjoy now, or save for a few years.
