Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
AldoConterno is known as the "King of Barolo"in Italy. Poderi Aldo Conternois situated in Monforte d'Alba on the prized Bussia Soprano vineyard,in the heart of the Barolo region. The Conterno family has beenproducing and aging the great Piemontese wines for more than fivegenerations. Aldo left his legendary brother at his father's cellar(the Giacomo Conterno estate) in 1969 to pursue his own winemakinginterests and reputation, creating the wines of Poderi Aldo Conterno inthe "Favot" cellar. The estate exclusively vinifies its own 25hectacres of grapes.

The Conterno brothers parted ways back inthe late sixties to create their own styles of Barolo, Giovanniproducing the more traditional style of the two. However, Aldo's winesare not considered modern; he still refuses to age them in smallbarriques. The wines are more fruit driven than the earthy wines of theGiacomo Conterno estate across town in Monforte. Aldo Conterno"scorporate policy of producing only the highest quality wines whilemixing tradition with innovation falls directly in line with theaspirations of IWM. We offer only the highest quality wines to ourclients.
