An end-to-end encounter in Turin somehow finished with just the one goal coming from Fernando Llorente in the 91st minute.
"It was an exciting game with one team attacking and another that was lethal on the counter," Conte told Sky Sport Italia. "We believed to the end, even running a few risks, but we wanted this victory.
"We have been working as a team for three years now and have built an important mentality here that pushes them on towards victory.
"I am fortunate to have a group of players that want to be protagonists and make their mark, even after winning for two years running."
The Bianconeri top Serie A by three points.
