⭐️90/100⭐️ “𝑰𝒍 𝑭𝒂𝒗𝒐𝒕” 𝑳𝒂𝒏𝒈𝒉𝒆 𝑵𝒆𝒃𝒃𝒊𝒐𝒍𝒐, 2005 📍Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Piemonte, Italy🇮🇹 🍇 100% Nebbiolo ⚡️ 14 % Tasted: August 2021 Beautiful color with a fine orange rim that doesn’t seem too oxidized. The bouquet started offering notes of port, brown apple and prunes, but after a bit of air it blew off and revealed quite a youthful and fresh Nebbiolo for its age. Strawberry (fresh and candied), dried sweet cherry, pressed flowers, orange peel, tar, thyme, mint, charcuterie and rusty metal followed on the nose. The oak is clear too. The palate was medium(+)-bodied with well integrated tannins and a vibrant acidity. Cherry, cranberry, raw liquorice, dark chocolate, cloves, spicy vanilla and mint. A taste of chalk and iron in the finish. Warming but well integrated alcohol. • “Il Favot” means “the favorite” • Grapes from different small (and younger) parcels at Bussia • Fermented in steel tanks (8 days skin contact - brings a deep color but lower tannic level) with indigenous yeast • Aged a few months in steel tanks followed by some months in barrique • No clarifying and filtration before bottling An estate of the elite in the Barolo area. The history dates back to 1969, when Aldo left him and his brothers (Giacomo Conterno) wine business to start his own adventure with more modern philosophies, following Angelo Gaja, meaning shorter maceration and some barrique next to the large Slavonian barrels. Aldo Conterno passed away in 2012, leaving the winery to his three sons, France, Giacomo and Stefano, who were all working with their father during his last yeast. They work organically without certification, farms 25 ha with very low yields - a total of 80.000 bottles pr. year.
