In the heart of the Langhe, in the hamlet of Bussia di Monforte d’Alba, is Cascina Sciulun, a typical historic farmhouse, constructed according to Piedmont architectural traditions. Built in the mid-nineteenth century and extended in the 1940s, the house has always belonged to the Conterno family.

The company Franco Conterno has deep roots, and has been a part of the family for many decades. It was nonno Pietro who allocated 18 hectares of land to Nebbiolo vineyards, initially to sell to other wineries for vinification, later destined for the creation of prestigious wines.

Fermentation temperature: variables with peaks of 32°C. Ageing in cellar: the new wine is kept 4 months in steel tanks; it is decanted several times before to be placed in new 600lt French oak barrels it ages for 18 months before being bottled.

Intense ruby red in colour with purple-and violet-bluish hues. Currant and sour black cherry scented with hints of ripe plum and prune on a spicy background. A mouthfilling body and a good structure blended in a persistent and elegant wood.
