Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.
Producer A.Conterno: As one of the most reputable wineries in Piedmont, Italy, Poderi Aldo Conterno continues to amaze the world with outstanding Barolo wines. Barolo is possibly the finest expression of what a grape varietal like Nebbiolo is capable of, and every bottle can be a story in itself The Langhe is a picturesque hillside paradise, and its noble soil never fails to enrich every sip. Conterno wines fall in a more modern Barolo category, with a commanding structure, a thunderous impact and a depth of flavor unmatched by any of their potential rivals. The primary flavors are all fruity, creating a refreshing, colorful aromatic perfume that lingers in your mouth, and your mind, for quite a while after imbibing. The liquid almost has a mind of its own, dancing in your glass to a tune composed by your imagination.
Region Piedmont: Italian culture values the unbreakable bond we share with family and very few things showcase that connection quite like a shared meal. Therefore, it's only natural that wine would also take its place as an important cultural aspect. Fine Italian produce always goes well with a variety of dishes, and that makes these wines an incredibly popular choice among wine enthusiasts who appreciate a good get-together. The foothills of the Alps help define this region's significantly colder, continental winter climate, but during the summer, the conditions are similar to the region of Burgundy. Flavor-wise, this region has a mind-boggling variety to offer. Not only is there a healthy selection of approved grapes to work with, but the soil often varies from estate to estate, letting every wine stand out. Expect to encounter powerful notes of rose petal flavor, spices, cherries, dried herbs, anise, and many more. Every bottle has a story to tell. Those of you with a tendency to hoard and collect fine wines will be especially intrigued, as Piedmont wines tend to mature extremely well, developing nuance and becoming more and more delicious as time goes on.
Type of Wine Barolo: Barolo have cemented their spot as one of Italy's most famous and desirable achievements, decorating the cellars of every serious wine collector. While the grape they're made from is rather dark and dusty-looking, the elixir that comes from this varietal is an almost crystal clear, light red, like a pair of seductive lips glistening in the candlelight.
