Notes from North Berkeley Imports:

"Monforte’s crown jewel, ‘Ginestra’ in the hands of Diego Conterno – a native talent who grew up literally in this vineyard – is otherworldly. This single-vineyard Barolo wine, sourced from the ‘Sori’ or 100% south-facing portion of ‘Ginestra,’ is bold, beautiful and seemingly eternal.

A rising star in the southern reaches of the Barolo zone, Diego Conterno and his son, Stefano, craft elegant Nebbiolo wines in Monforte d’Alba. Diego started his own project in 2000, after two decades at Conterno Fantino where he worked alongside his cousins, bringing with him a five-acre plot in ‘Ginestra,’ Monforte’s top cru. Conterno wines “blend the energy and brawn of Monforte with the translucence of traditionally inspired winemaking,” says Antonio Galloni. Rich and potent yet suave in perfume and flavor, Conterno wines are made naturally, fermented on indigenous yeasts and aged in traditional large oak cask (botti). All vines are cared for organically".
