Deep garnet in colour, with tremendous intensity on the nose.

Colonnello is always very perfumed and floral on the nose because of the sandy soils in which the vines grow.

Blackberry and woodland fruit characters on the palate are balanced by rounded, ripe tannins and powerful structure.

The Colonnello vineyard is one of Conterno's best vineyards. It is situated on Bussia Soprana in Monforte d'Alba and is one of the most sought after sites in the area.

Maceration on the skins lasted 24 days and was followed by temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tank with maximum temperatures of 32C. The wine remained in stainless steel for a further 4-5 months after which it was transferred to 25hl Slovenian oak barrels where it remained for about 26-28 months before bottling.

Producer Information

Aldo Conterno is one of the historic names of Italian wine. The Conterno family has been making wine in Monforte since at least the 1700s. Aldo's grandfather, Giovannni Conterno, founded his own winery in 1908 which was then run by his son, Giacomo. After a stint in the USA in the 1950s, Aldo worked with his older brother Giovanni in this winery until he decided to strike out on his own in 1969. Aldo's three sons now make the wine (Stefano) and run the business (Franco and Giacomo).

Over the years, production has been deliberately reduced and the family now produces 80,000 bottles rather than the 180,000 in 1998.
