The 2009 Langhe Rosso is a new wine made predominantly from old-vine Freisa with some Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that is basically an updated version of the wine previously sold as Quartetto.

The recent passing of Aldo Conterno after a long bout with illness left a huge void in Piemonte. I still remember the first time I met Conterno. His extraordinary sense of dignity left a lasting impression. Conterno’s three sons have been in charge of the winery for some time, but it is still impossible not to feel the loss of a man who did so much for the image of Piemonte around the world.
