Aldo Conterno Il Favot Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

Aldo Conterno is one of the historic names of Italian wine. The Conterno family has been making wine in Monforte since at least the 1700s. Aldo's grandfather, Giovanni Conterno, founded his own winery in 1908 which was then run by his son, Giacomo. After a stint in the USA in the 1950s, Aldo worked with his older brother Giovanni in this winery until he decided to strike out on his own in 1969. Aldo's three sons now make the wine (Stefano) and run the business (Franco and Giacomo). Over the years, production has been deliberately reduced and the family now produces 80,000 bottles rather than the 200,000 produced in 1998.

Conterno uses the youngest Nebbiolo vines (20 years old on average) from their vineyards in Bussia to produce this wine. The result is a wine with fresh and lively fruit character and elegant, lifted aromas with the characteristic robust tannins and acidity.
