Aldo Conterno Langhe Nebbiolo Il Favot – A Symphony of Elegance and Tradition

Discover the epitome of Italian winemaking excellence with Aldo Conterno’s Langhe Nebbiolo Il Favot. This magnificent wine encapsulates the essence of the revered Nebbiolo grape, masterfully cultivated in the esteemed vineyards of Bussia in Monforte d’Alba. Il Favot not only represents a tradition of unparalleled quality but also marks a venture into the artistry of winemaking that defines the Langhe region.

Crafted from a meticulous selection of Nebbiolo grapes, including the renowned Michet and Lampia varieties, Il Favot is born from the passion and dedication of manual harvests. Each grape is selectively handpicked in mid-October, ensuring only the finest fruits contribute to this masterpiece. This careful curation heralds the onset of a vinification process where tradition meets innovation, with the grapes undergoing red vinification and a precise maceration of the skins in stainless steel tanks. For 6-8 days, the must remains in intimate contact with the skins at controlled temperatures of 24 to 26 degrees centigrade, a method meticulously designed to extract a rich color and optimal softness while retaining fewer tannins.

Aldo Conterno’s commitment to excellence transcends the vineyard, continuing into the cellar where Il Favot is refined with wisdom passed through generations. After its initial maturation in steel and several rackings, this new wine is cradled in wood, enveloping it in a nurturing embrace that imparts complexity and character before it reaches the bottle. This careful aging process ensures that each bottle of Il Favot is a testament to the winery’s dedication to creating wines of profound depth and elegance.

Il Favot’s charm lies not just in its meticulous production but in its story—a narrative of young vineyards, no more than 15 years of age, coming into their own under the watchful eyes of the Conterno family. The limited maceration technique used signifies a deliberate approach to ensure the wine is characterized by its remarkable color and exceptional softness.

Inviting you to experience the very soul of Piedmont, Il Favot is a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, capturing the vibrancy and spirited essence of its terroir. This wine is an invitation to explore the nuanced world of Nebbiolo, presented by one of Italy’s most illustrious winemaking families. Aldo Conterno’s Langhe Nebbiolo Il Favot stands as a beacon of Italian craftsmanship, promising an unparalleled journey into the heart of winemaking tradition with every sip.
