Conterno-Fantino Monpra 2012
Deep garnet, with an elegant bouquet showing notes of coffee, barley, and strawberry jam; full and voluptuous on the palate, with sweet tannins. Serving Suggestions: A wonderful accompaniment to meat, pasta and aged cheese. Especially delicious with the local specialty, "Tajarin" (egg tagliatelle).
A hefty dose of new oak is offset by concentrated fruit in this red, with black cherry, blackberry and spice flavors. A powerhouse modern style, featuring a firm, compact finish. Nebbiolo and Barbera. Drink now through 2019. 750 cases made.
