Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2010 Barbera dAlba Vignota is a bit less exuberant than the 2011, but in exchange it has the essential minerality and vibrancy of this great Piedmont vintage. Brisk saline notes frame expressive dark red fruit in this polished, silky Barbera. Conterno Fantinos 2010 Vignota is a pure pleasure to taste. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014. (Oct 2012)

Producer
Conterno Fantino, founded in 1982, testifies to the talent and vision of Claudio Conterno, vineyard manager and co-proprietor, and his friend and partner, Guido Fantino, who styles the wines. Like Claudio and Guido themselves, tradition and innovation are close friends at Conterno Fantino. French oak barriques and new wood marry Piedmont’s own, blockbuster structure, opulent, tightly knit texture, magnificent tannins and rich, layered flavors. Today, the property comprises 64 acres under vine, but Conterno Fantino’s initial nucleus dates back to the 1800s. In 1989, Guido and Claudio acquired terrain and built a state-of-the-art new winery inaugurated in 1994. This location is scenically set, dominating the most ancient section of Monforte and overlooked by the majestic sweep of the Alps. The subsequent thirteen years continued in the same vein: cru by cru, for the fullest, most faithful expression of individual terroirs. Conterno Fantino’s initial nucleus is the cru Ginestra: a historical one for Barolo, documented as far back as the 1800s. In 1989, Guido and Claudio acquired terrain from the nearby area of Bricco Bastia, within the commune of Monforte d’Alba. The newest generation has joined the winery in the form of Guido’s children. Fabio Fantino, an enologist, works side by side with his father styling the wines while Elisa handles PR and marketing.
