In the 19th century, Giovanni Conterno joined his father on the family domaine in Monforte d'Alba. This domaine was an export success from the very outset with its Barolo Reserve, which was only produced in the best years. In the late 1930s, Giovanni handed the baton to his son Giacomo, who was followed in turn by his sons Giovanni and Aldo.
However, a few years later, and after some time spent in California, Aldo decided to set up his own domaine, Poderi Aldo Conterno, in 1969.
The "Poderi Aldo Conterno" winery is situated in Bussia of Monforte d'Alba which is the heart of the Barolowine area.
The estate, which vinifies exclusively its own grapes, consists of 25 hectares of vineyard.
Always following a strict family tradition, red wines are neither clarified nor filtered.
Their cru vineyards Romirasco, Cicala and Colonnello located in Bussia of Monforte d’Alba, portray the real expression of the Langa terroir. The interpretation of a territory goes along with the perfect knowledge of its components; that circumstance can become true only after a long and careful study of the components.
