Aldo Conterno Granbussia, 1970-2006! Great Roger Sabon, and Antinori’s Dessert Wine!
June 8, 2015 
A Note from Sergio

What can I say about Aldo Conterno? He was a traditionalist who wasn't afraid of innovation. His meticulous winemaking skills maintained that unmistakable identity of an Aldo Conterno Barolo, vintage after superb vintage. He came from a line of winemakers who have always taken great pride in their craft, in the Langhe terroir and growing the highest quality Nebbiolo within Piemonte. He was one of those few producers that can deliver approachability with longevity.

Aldo was simply a master--more specifically, he was an expert Barolo maker. When Aldo passed away in May 2012, the wine world lost a leading winemaker and an important role model. For five generations, the Conterno family has been producing some of the greatest Piemontese wines. 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 where the estate exclusively vinifies its own 25 hectares of grapes. Of all the wines that Poderi Aldo Conterno produces, none is more famous, more spectacular, more long-aging, and more mind-blowing than the rarely made Barolo Granbussia Riserva.

Working with sources in Europe, I secured eleven Granbussia bottlings made between 1970 and 2006. These are pristine, perfectly kept wines, and I'm very excited to bring them to you. Fleshing out this offer is a classic, elegant 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret from Roger Sabon and Antinori's quintessential dessert wine, Castello della Sala 2009 Muffato Della Sala. It's a great offer to kick off this Monday!

Enjoy!
