The father and son duo, Giacomo and Giovanni Conterno, are known by many in Piedmont as the masters of Barolo for producing legendary Monfortino wines. Following the end of World War I, Giacomo sought out to make Barolo with great aging potential, which came to be known as one of the firsts to be made in the ‘classic’ Barolo style.
The tradition continues today as Roberto Conterno, Giovanni’s son, produces some of the best Piedmont wines each year according to many wine critics. Monfortino wines have stood the test of time, and have won over Barolo lovers from all over the world.
