2006 Langhe Rosso Monpra Conterno-Fantino

Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The 2006 Langhe Rosso Monpra is a huge, massive wine that bursts onto the palate with tons of dark fruit, grilled herbs, spices, tar and graphite. This imposing red will require some patience but it is already a beautifully-balanced, harmonious and utterly delicious bottle of wine. The round, polished close is yet another sign that 2006 is an important vintage for Monpra. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026. ||Conterno-Fantino is without question one of Piedmont – and Italy’s – very finest producers. While the estate’s Barolos get most of the attention, readers will find the more affordable wines just as delicious. Unfortunately, this year I wasn’t able to taste the Barbera d’Alba Vignota and Langhe Nebbiolo Ginestrino, but in most vintages, they, too, are highly rewarding wines. Wine Advocate.October, 2009

Azienda Agricola Conterno Fantino was established in 1982 by Guido Fantino and Claudio Conterno and enjoyed almost immediate success. The style here is polished and elegant. Barriques are used but never overwhelm; these are simply delicious wines.

“Conterno-Fantino remains one of my favorite Piedmont producers and is to be commended for the consistently high quality it delivers across its entire range.” Antonio Galloni
