TASTING NOTES

Product of the 3 ha (1 ha of which is Barbera) in Cerretta Cru Roberto Conterno purchased in 2008 (only second acquisition, after Cascina Francia in ’74, in the house’s history).  Still young and lively with loads of chocolaty dark berries, but smooth, elegant and boasting signs of depth already.  It’s difficult to hide the pedigree.  Not that a traditionalist house like Conterno would want to.
