2012 Sette7anni Barolo Riserva, Franco Conterno, Piedmont, Italy
Azienda Franco Conterno is located in the heart of the Langhe, in the hamlet of Bussia di Monforte d'Alba. The estate's oldest vines were planted by Pietro Conterno before being passed on to his son Giacomo, who later passed it on to his nephew Franco, who took over in 1996. Today the winery is run by Franco, his wife Vilma and their two sons Andrea and Daniele, together with his wife Emina. The family continues to honour the legacy of Pietro by producing authentic, world-class wines that reflect the area's exceptional microclimate and terroir.
This wonderful Barolo is rich and complex on the nose with floral hints enhanced by new oak. Rich, sweet, thick, and full bodied this is sumptuous on the palate.
