Aldo Conterno, the "King of Barolo" in Italy, is one of what is perhaps Barolo's premier winemaking dynasty. Aldo Conterno possesses a true Italian country gentleman's unpretentious and friendly manner, a simplicity which cannot disguise his innate broadmindedness and great professional competence.
Poderi Aldo Conterno is situated in Monforte d'Alba on the prized Bussia Soprano vineyard, in the heart of the Barolo region. The Conterno family has been producing and aging the great Piemontese wines for more than five generations. Aldo left his legendary brother at his father's cellar (the Giacomo Conterno estate) in 1969 to pursue his own winemaking interests and reputation, creating the wines of Poderi Aldo Conterno in the "Favot" cellar.
“Conterno once again takes its place among the region’s top producers…Based on the wines I have tasted recently this venerable property looks to be in great hands for the future.” – Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate
