Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Made from fruit grown at the Giacomo Conterno estate, this rare 1958 Barolo dates from before the time when elder son Giovanni Conterno assumed the right to use their father’s name for his estate, and Aldo departed for his own estate, Poderi Aldo Conterno. A tumultuous growing year marked by hail, 1958 is one of the great vintages of the mid-twentieth century, and the ’58 Barolo Monforte e Perno feels almost ageless, revealing itself in myriad, subtle kaleidoscopic layers. Mature, sweet Nebbiolo fruit mingles with dried rose petals, roasted game, tarry earth, and touches of orange zest and peppery spices. Almost weightless in the mouth, this wine is fully resolved; smooth, ethereal and faintly savory, this Barolo drinks with a magical complexity. Made in traditional methods, this ’58 Barolo Monforte e Perno is more than a perfectly aged Barolo that rewards the palate of vintage wine connoisseurs--it’s a piece of history.
