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: variable with peaks of 32°C. Ageing in cellar: the new wine is kept from 3 months in steel tanks and undergoes malolactic fermentation; it is decanted several times, and finally aged in French oak barrels (45/50hl capacity) for 24 months.

Amarone Classic comes from a careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and a very strict management of the apple. The grapes dedicated to the production of Auberge are the best exposed and the most spattered. The grapes resting is preceded by a very careful vineyard selection designed to eliminate damaged bunches and those that do not exhibit the ideal characteristics for quality grafting. The grapes are dried for about 120 days, after which vinification takes place. Winemaking is structured so as to encourage the release of the peel of all noble components. Amarone Classico is a wine that is very tied to the traditional production method, using only large volume wood containers; able to evolve the wine in the three years of aging without distorting the aromatic profile.

Santa Ema Merlot Gran Reserva is a red wine from the Maipo Valley from the famous Chilean winery Santa Ema with a complex and intense aroma of plums, cherries with tones of roasted coffee, licorice, caramel and vanilla. The taste is full, extractive with a pleasantly sweet tannin, with very intense fruitiness reminiscent of a sweet fruit cake. The grapes for the Gran Reserva range come from limited harvests, which ensures a higher concentration of aromatic and flavor components. As a result, the resulting wines are fuller, more expressive with a wider range of perceptions and nuances, which are complemented by tones from longer (8-10 months) maturation of the wine in new barriques (French and American) barrels.

"The Fontodi 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is expressive, dark and thickly concentrated. I received my samples early and found that this wine was a little shy or slow to open in this early phase. If given extra time, the bouquet warms up to dark fruit, plum, rum cake and dried violet. I came back to the wine about two hours later and discovered a pretty note of crushed aspirin or carbon, with more crushed flower. The oak adds sweet spice and scorched earth, but these too will integrate with time."
