A Symphony of Tradition and Innovation: The 2018 Daniele Conterno Barolo

Legacy and Landscapes

Nestled in the heart of Piedmont, the Daniele Conterno winery embodies a rich tapestry of family tradition and viticultural excellence. At the helm of this historic endeavor is the Conterno family, custodians of the land since the mid-19th century. From the pioneering spirit of Pietro Conterno to the innovative approach of Daniele, each generation has contributed to the winery's prestigious legacy. Today, Daniele Conterno, alongside his father Franco, stewards 37 hectares of hallowed ground, a testament to their forebearers' vision and dedication.

Crafting Elegance

The Daniele Conterno Barolo is a masterclass in winemaking, marrying traditional techniques with modern sensibilities. With vineyards cradled 450-600 meters above sea level in the esteemed locales of Bussia, Pugnane, and Panerole, the winery champions organic farming practices, ensuring each grape is a pure expression of its terroir. The meticulous care extends to the cellar, where the Nebbiolo Michet and Nebbiolo Lampia varietals undergo a 15-day maceration, followed by a 24-month maturation in Slavonian oak barrels and a 12-month bottle aging to achieve perfect harmony.

The 2018 Daniele Conterno Barolo dazzles with its complex bouquet of ripe cherries, violets, and subtle earthy undertones, a prelude to its robust and nuanced palate. Elegantly structured, it unfolds layers of red fruit, licorice, and spice, underpinned by a velvety mouthfeel and refined tannins, culminating in a lingering, harmonious finish.

Savoring the Moment

This Barolo is a versatile companion to the table, beautifully complementing hearty dishes such as braised beef, truffle-infused pasta, and aged cheeses. It shines equally as a contemplative sip, inviting deep conversation and reflection, ideal for special occasions or as a gift that speaks volumes of the giver's discernment.

In the hands of Daniele Conterno, each bottle is not merely wine but a narrative of passion, innovation, and respect for tradition, a beacon for those who seek to experience the sublime beauty of Piedmont's terroir.
