Giacomo Conterno

Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1985 750ml


About Giacomo Conterno

Giacomo Conterno is justifiably famous. This legendary estate is the creator of Barolo Monfortino, not merely one of the world’s greatest wines but... also the first Barolo made in what has come to be known as the “classic style,” but Giacomo Conterno’s renown spreads beyond this marquee, collectable Barolo. After founding the estate in 1908, Giovanni Conterno made the first Barolo Monfortino in 1924. His son, Giacomo, inherited his father’s drive to make a serious, long-aging wine (Giacomo’s brother, Aldo Conterno, shared inheritance of the estate, but split in 1969 to form his own estate). Giacomo continued to rely on négociant grapes until 1974, when he purchased the Cascina Francia vineyard, the famed southwestern-facing 40-acre plot whose calcareous soil and densely planted Nebbiolo vines is home to Barolo Francia, as well as Barolo Monfortino. Upon Giacomo’s passing in 2004, son Roberto assumed control, continuing his legacy of crafting traditional wines of tremendous longevity and unparalleled quality. Roberto added to the estate’s lands by purchasing the historic Cerretta vineyard, as well as other choice plots located in Serralunga. A proud member of the Piemonte old guard, Giacomo Conterno sets the standard for traditional, age-worthy Barolo.

Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 1982 750ml

About Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello was an intractable defender of traditional Barolo, the “last of the Mohicans,” in his words. Bartolo made Barolos that... gorgeously embodied their vintage and their terroir, and these supple, powerful, and nuanced wines have captivated their fans for generations. Since Bartolo’s passing in 2005, his daughter Maria Teresa Mascarello has helmed the cantina at 15 Via Roma, the legendary site of the Bartolo Mascarello estate since its founding in 1918, and under her leadership, Mascarello’s Barolo, Dolcetto, and Barbera have grown even finer, subtler, more detailed, and spellbinding. While the Mascarello estate sports enviable holdings in Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Rué, located in the commune of Barolo, as well as in La Morra’s Rocche in the commune of La Morra, it still has never released a cru wine. Blending, Bartolo believed, provided balance, especially in challenging vintages. Maria Teresa sees no reason to change her father’s ways (or those of his father, and his before him). After all, there’s no improving upon perfection.
