The pack contains a selection of recent releases and is the only way to get your hands on the best of Giacomo Conterno:
1x 2013 Barolo 'Monfortino' Riserva DOCG
The 2013 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is brilliant, precise, focused and nuanced, with the classic sense of austerity it has always shown from barrel. In the 2013, readers will find a biting, vibrant Monfortino built along super-classic lines that includes vintages like 1996 and 1999, but the 2013 has more finesse that is the result of a the slight refinements and evolution that have taken place here over the last decade. In 2013, Roberto Conterno bottled the entirety of his Barolo production from Francia as Monfortino.

1x 2015 Barolo 'Francia' DOCG
The 2015 Barolo Francia is a soaring, regal wine endowed with tremendous intensity in all of its dimensions. The most reticent and inward of the 2015s, the Francia possesses superb textural density and persistence all the way through to the explosive finish. An immense, towering Barolo, the Francia is positively stellar. It is also going to require a number of years to be at its best. In recent years, the Conterno Barolo Francia has often been relatively accessible post bottling, the 2015 is far from that.

1x 2017 Barbera d'Alba 'Vigna Francia' DOCG
The 2017 Barbera d'Alba Francia is ravishingly beautiful. Silky, sensual and impeccably polished, with tremendous palate presence. A rush of sweet red cherry, raspberry and pomegranate fruit punctuates this vivid, radiant Barbera from Conterno. The richness of the warm, dry year is very much in evidence, and yet the wine is superb.

3x 2016 Nervi-Conterno Gattinara DOCG
Tasted from the barrel, the 2016 Gattinara will be bottled in September and will hit the market one month later in October. This is a more important wine compared to the 2015. It shows more depth and substance in the mouth and more length. It's more robust too. The consumer should wait several more months for this one.
