The Winery

Poderi Aldo Conterno

"He existed in a special place between modernism and tradition. He wasn’t an outright revolutionary like Elio Altare or Domenico Clerico. He was a man of clear ideas and determination, and he was a beacon of light who shined on the path the rest of us would take."
- Enzo Brezza, a Barolo producer and president of Albeisa, an Italian winegrowers association

Aldo Conterno has been described as Piemonte's most talented winemaker, and his wines have frequently been ranked among the finest of the region, often with the emphasis on the balance. British wine publication Decanter rated Poderi Aldo Conterno among Italy's shortlist of Second Growths. The vineyards are now managed using organic methodology.

Though committed to the focus on production of Barolo, Conterno remained among the Piemonte producers who are devoted to producing quality Barbera.

Tasting Notes

WA95
The 1990 Barolo Riserva Granbussia is a ripe, exotic beauty endowed with plenty of tar, roses, licorice and wild herbs. Still spectacularly rich and intense, this full-bodied, layered Barolo offers superb length and a sweeping finish where the glycerin and sheer weight of the vintage come through in spades. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
WS95
Rich and powerful but very elegant. Dark ruby color. Aromas of black pepper, spices and berries with a floral character beneath it all. Full-bodied, with well-integrated, fine tannins and a finish that goes on for minutes. Wonderful now, even better with some bottle age.--Piedmont retrospective. Best after 2005.
