Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Remarkably vibrant and intense, this ’43 Barolo Monfortino Riserva doesn’t drink like a wine that’s more than 75 years old. A bold brick orange in the glass, this wine has the patina that only maturity can give, and a concentrated, structured palate conveys its tertiary notes of tea, dried rose petals, tar and game. This vintage Barolo Monfortino Riserva layers its tertiary notes with its pure Nebbiolo fruit, crossing the palate with an ethereal feel as it builds to a lingering, mesmerizing finish. 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.
