Description

A legend in the bottle: historically the Monfortino drowned interest domestically and abroad for many reasons, starting with its immense quality, the incredible longevity and indeed a continuous evolution in the bottle over the years. A product loved and sought after by connoisseurs, by those who want to try it at least once in their life, by collectors who cannot miss to have it in their cellar and also by investors, historically attracted by the ability to increase its value once released on the market against a demand that always and by far exceeds the current offer of nine/ten thousand bottles per year. Monfortino is the essence of Langhe and Barolo, a timeless classic that is now part of the Olympus of wine thanking to its strenuous pursuit to perfection through a rigorous respect for the Piedmontese winemaking traditions.

A myth that began in 1924 when the name “Monfortino” was used for the first time to remark the origin of the Barolo Extra bottled at that time from Monforte d’Alba area. However, this wine becomes complete only in 1978 following the acquisition of the fourteen hectares of Cascina Francia by the Conterno family and the implantation of Nebbiolo, officially ceasing the purchase of grapes from third parties (a successful practice that brought to this wine anyway) and finally working exclusively with own grapes.

Today the fruits used for Monfortino generally come from the same parcels located in vineyards with a South/South-West exposure at an altitude of 400/450 meters. The vines are medium dense with about 4000 plants per hectare and are left with only one bunch per branch for a weigth of approx three hundred grams.The cellar practices are traditional, time consuming and complex as handed down from father to son. Today Roberto Conterno takes care of it as the interpreter of a family tradition who deserves the merit to keepi the armor of Monfortino always shiny, capable to withstand any challenge that the multifaceted world of wine is able to pose. A wine for which both possession and tasting have an experiential and elitist meaning, which makes selection and the lucky protagonists proud.

It is believed that consuming it immediately would be almost a crime but surely there is somebody willing to take the risk; for all the others, it is known that the Monfortino is never in a hurry and improves over the years, likely many.
