Barolo “Mosconi” DOCG, Conterno Fantino (2016) - Piemonte
Grape : Nebbiolo.
Conterno-Fantino winery was born from a union between two hostorical families of the area who have now etablished themselves among the best Barolo producers.
Vigna Ped is located on the historic Mosconi hill (in the Mosconi district) The vines date from 1950 and produce intensely flavorful grapes with exceptional structure. First produced in 2004, the vineyard’s soil is rich in clay and manganese which contributes a powdery mineral note to the grapes. The wine from this vineyard is all about power, structure, freshness and elegance and stands up to long cellaring. Like Sori Ginestra, the soil is rich in clay and limestone and quite compact. Because of this, this Barolo is assertive, masculine and structured, and has noticeable acidity due to the elevation. Aged for 2 years in french barriques.
Food Pairing : This wine is the perfect accompaniment for roasts and braised meat. It is excellent with fondue with truffles and parmesan cheese.
