9:30 AM appointment this morning at Aldo Conterno. A great visit and conversation with winemaker Giacomo - a welcoming, down to earth man.
2011 Aldo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Conca Tre Pile
2010 Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello
2007 Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala
2006 Aldo Conterno Barolo Gran Bussia Riserva
All fantastic, but of course the hands down WOTM (wine of the morning) was the Gran Bussia.
One of the best visits I have had in Piemonte was with Giacomo. A really beautiful estate with a commanding presence overlooking the Bussia vineyard. I'm sure you got the history lesson centered around the cru vineyards of Monforte as well.
