Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Despite being more than 70 years old, the ’47 Barolo Monfortino Riserva feels remarkably youthful, retaining its elegant smoky minerals, tarry earth, classic rose petals, and remnants of its pure Nebbiolo fruits. Tannins are almost fully resolved, but this ’47 Monfortino has kept its vivid acidity, ethereal mouthfeel, and surprising power. Simply superb! 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.
