Diego Conterno has been making wine on his own in Monforte d’Alba since 2003. His estate comprises 7.5 hectares, 2 of which make up the ‘grand cru’ site Ginestra. He was joined in 2010 by his son Stefano. In 2014 they converted to organic viticulture and added a new wing to their winery. The winemaking here is very traditional: static fermenters and ever larger barrels (botte grande) for maturation.

Monforte is known for wines of depth, structure and length – we all know what that can mean – but the painstaking care in the vineyard and gentle winemaking bring out the elegance of the terroir.

Nascetta is a local white variety almost extinct by the mid-nineties, but now undergoing something of a rebirth, with widespread planting. Tasting this it’s easy to see why: the wine is vibrant and fresh, with chalky lime, peach, pineapple and lemon notes, has a clear mineral seam and lifts to a juicy citrus finish.
