Description Sub Region
If you’re a Barolo enthusiast who prizes delicacy, nuance, aromatics and sophistication in your wines, look no further than the ’82 Barolo Monfortino. This wine has a kaleidoscopic nose that changes perspective in turns, showing off first one element and then another: precise Nebbiolo fruit, crushed rose petals and violets, balsamic, sunbaked earth, truffles, warm saddle leather and baking spices make an appearance. Silky and textured, this wine swaddles the palate with an ineffable weightlessness, yet it’s nonetheless structured and youthful. In years of outstanding quality, Giacomo Conterno selects the very best grapes in Cascina Francia, and these become Monfortino. Fermentation of both Barolo bottlings is identical with the exception that the Monfortino gets no temperature control; no matter how high the fermentation temperatures may go, there is no intervention on the part of the Giacomo Conterno. Drinking now, this bottling has years ahead of it.
