Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Giacomo Conterno’s 2010 Barolo Monfortino Riserva has repeatedly been called “perfect,” and it very well might be. Layers and layers of pure Nebbiolo fruit waft from the glass, wrapped in rose petals, new leather, umami, warm baking spices, licorice, and touches of balsamic herbs and roasted game. Even in its youth, this Barolo seamlessly melds its elegant, substantial tannins, vivid acidity, and ethereal mouth-feel, resulting in a mesmerizing balancing act that builds in complexity as the wine glides to a lingering, finessed finish. 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. For the best drinking experience, cellar this monumental wine for a couple of years and then drink for three or more decades.
