Franco Conterno Vino Rosato
Franco Conterno's winery is located on the lower slopes of the Bussia vineyard, in Monforte d'Alba. He is proud of the care for the land and the grapes that it yields and follows the regulations of organic agriculture and organic wine making. His vineyards expand beyond the territory of Bussia into Novello and other municipalities - thus his production ranges from the native Nascetta to some superb Barolos of the best "crus".
We tried also this simple "vino rosato", which is made from the very first pressing of the Nebbiolo grapes and love its good body, its bright colour and above all the sensorial complexity that Nebbiolo offers to all those who like the "roses" in this phantastic grape.
Produced with the noblest grapes of the Langhe, through a red vinification process with 5-hour cold maceration of the skins.
The must is then separated from the skins and placed in steel vats to ferment. Not barrel-aged.
Rich and complex bouquet on the nose, floral with red fruit and slightly woody notes; great aromatic potential in the mouth.
Excellent with seafood and white meats.
If you look for a complex, yet easy to drink summer wine, this is it!
