Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Towering, powerful, and breathtakingly pure, the 2013 Barolo Monfortino Riserva is a monumental wine. This wine is built for aging, and while excruciatingly young, the ’13 Monfortino is reveling in its exquisite balance, layering its crisp red and brooding blue fruits with forest floor, wild herbs, violet petals, cigar wrapper, leather and touches of tar and minerals. While the wine’s austere tannins argue for patience, even in its infancy, this Monfortino reveals its transparency, detail, and nuance in its superlative progression of textures and flavors that linger on the wine’s sustained, resonant finish. Brilliant and drop-dead gorgeous, the ’13 Monfortino is destined to be legendary. In 2013, Giacomo Conterno opted against bottling any Cascina Francia, instead putting all the vineyard’s fruit into the estate’s Barolo Monfortino. A traditionally made wine, Barolo Monfortino ferments without temperature control, and the wine ages for seven years in botti.
