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.
