Giacomo Conterno

"Cantine Giacomo Conterno wines are among some of the finest Barolo produced in all of Piedmont. Made by tradionalist methods, his winemaking began sometime around 1908 - with family viticulture roots dating back to the 18th century. Giacomo Conterno's two sons, Giovanni and Aldo Conterno, formally took over the estate in 1961. With the older Giovanni Conterno already responsible for winemaking since the 1959 vintage, Aldo Conterno eventually parted ways over conflicting winemaking philosophies with his brother, and he then founded his own estate: Poderi Aldo Conterno in 1969. Both wineries share the view that the modernist"" approach (using small oak barrels and shorter maceration times) undermines the inherent fruit of the Nebbiolo by adding too much vanilla flavor to the wine. Roberto Conterno became the 4th generation to man the helm in 2003 and has continued the traditions while expanding the estate's holdings to include 3 hectares of Ceretta vines. "
