2017 Diego Conterno "Ferrione" Barbera d'Alba

SKU #1527914

After spending twenty years working along side his cousins at Conterno-Fantino, Diego Conterno struck out on his own in 2000. Now joined by his son, Stefano, he crafts remarkably masculine and structured wines from the Monforte d'Alba sub-zone in Piedmont. The Barbera "Ferrione" comes from a west-southwest hillside on clay and marl with a mix of younger vines and some as old as 55 years. Entirely destemmed and fermented in large concrete tanks, this Barbera is at once elegant and robust, with bright red fruits and warm spices intermingling beautifully on the medium-bodied, fine-grained palate. For fans of immediately accessible wines, this is the one to reach for while you wait for Diego's outstanding Barolos to come of age.

Diego Conterno trained under the late Beppe Colla at Prunotto and subsequently founded Conterno-Fantino in 1982 with his cousins. More recently, he eatablished his own winery in an effort to produce more classic style wines aged in large oak barrels. His 2017 Barbera is a very pure and expressive wine with wonderful concentrated fruit that is smooth and round on the palate and compatible with a wide array of meats, pastas and cheeses. It's also the ideal wine for Pizza night!
