Description Sub Region Producer Notes
The 1955 Barolo Monfortino Riserva embodies its vintage, which is one of the great classic years of the mid-twentieth century. Dried rose petals, subtle spice, touches of game and dusty earth, and kisses of brown sugar and soy frame the pure red fruits in this astonishingly ageless Monfortino. Graceful and silky, this Monfortino hangs in the mouth with an ethereal feel, even as it glides to a complex, surprising finish that balances power with delicacy. 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.
