Conterno Fantino stands for two families, the Conternos and Fantinos. At the same time, it is virtually a single family - the "Conterno Fantinos", whose energies and vision seamlessly come together on the estate. It was founded in 1982 by two friends, Guido Fantino and Claudio Conterno, whose own fathers, mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers had all earned their livelihood in the vineyard, making wine they sold in bulk. Guido and Claudio were little more than toddlers when they were charged with weeding between the vine rows. Their studies in agronomy and wine-making completed, they set out on their own and determined to invest in top quality and estate-grown, estate-bottled wine. The very high reputation they have built for themselves has never diminished the characteristic, grass-roots simplicity and sincerity that goes into everything they do. Their vineyard management, like them, foregrounds authenticity and respect for the soil.
The Mosconi bottling is from the commune of Monforte d'Alba, and includes vines dating back to the early 50's. An absolutely incredible buy on a wine that will age for DECADES in your cellar. DID I MENTION ULTRA-RARE 3 LITERS??

95+ points Antonio Galloni: "The richest and darkest of these wines, the 2010 Barolo Mosconi is laced with dark cherry, plum, chocolate, menthol, savory herb and clove nuances. The Mosconi is a wine of power, breadth and richness, with tremendous resonance and weight, all qualities typical of this south-facing site in Mosconi. Naturally, the 2010 needs time to fully come together, but today it is striking and impeccable in its balance. The rich, explosive finish makes it hard to resist a second taste. The 2010 spent one year in 100% new French oak barrels and a second year in cask."
First come, first served, wines arrive Summer. Salute'!
