In 2008, Roberto Conterno bought a three-hectare parcel in the Cerretta Vineyard in the north of Serralunga d'Alba. (Cascina Francia is in the far south of Serralunga d'Alba.) This first vintage of Nebbiolo and is just labeled Nebbiolo d'Alba, not Barolo. We understand that this will be a Barolo in 2009. In addition to two hectares of Nebbiolo, Conterno's parcel includes one hectare of Barbera. There is also a 2008 Barbera d'Alba from this vineyard.
