GIACOMO CONTERNO Cerretta Barolo 2019 in ORIGINAL WOOD CASE
THE WINERY – GIACOMO CONTERNO
Today Roberto Conterno runs the family business, continuing the story of the winery with the same commitment and passion that guided it more than a century ago. This involves careful pruning, elimination of the excess bunches and defoliation that allows the sun and air to filter through properly to the grapes, enabling them to ripen evenly. These traditional stratagems might even be called simple; with their respect for the pace and the whims of nature but, decade after decade, they have made this winery a symbol of Italian excellence around the world.
These stratagems leave the wine’s traditional fragrances and flavours undistorted. This can only be achieved with a perfect balance between the terroir and the manual activity. Not by chance do Giacomo Conterno wines represent and transmit in a glass the guiding values that have made it the name it is today; respect, love and comprehension for the vine, the land and tradition.
Barolo “Cerretta” by Giacomo Conterno is in intense, prestigious and very elegant expression of Langhe, aged for over 40 months in big oak barrels.
