Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
IWM’s founder, Sergio Esposito, says that the 1937 Barolo Monfortino Riserva is possibly the best wine he’s ever had. Impossible to describe, the ’37 Monfortino is at once aged and ageless, layering its fading primary fruits with caramel, roasted game, sherry-like spices, and fleeting rose petals. Tannins are soft yet palpable, and the wine fills the mouth with an ethereal, silken feel--crafted by Giacomo Conterno himself, this wine is a revelation. Giacomo Conterno crafts its Barolo Monfortino exclusively in vintages of the highest caliber; between the years of 1920 and 2009, Barolo Monfortino made only 47 out of a possible 89 appearances, averaging fewer than 600 cases in each vintage. Barolo Monfortino Riserva is unquestionably a standard-bearer in Barolo, and it consistently shows the deft hand of its maker in its mind-blowing complexity, nuance, power and ineffable beauty.
