Tasting Notes

WA100

The 2010 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is a perfect wine and there are few things I am more sure of in this life. This is an extraordinary creation that bursts from the glass with a level of distinct intensity and elegance that is nothing short of breathtaking. The wine literally evokes an emotional and deeply visceral reaction thanks to the lasting impression it makes on your heart, mind and gut. This Barolo opens to a delicate garnet color that is brightened with crystalline luminosity. The bouquet offers an immediate curtain-raiser with chiseled aromas of wild berry, licorice, white truffle and tar. That explosive start is followed by a mounting crescendo of complexity and nuance. The wine is extremely silky and polished in terms of mouthfeel and this helps to underline its impressive persistence. Bravo!

JS99

This is one of the most balanced, harmonious Monfortinos I’ve ever tasted. Aromas of dried rose petals and oranges. It’s full-bodied yet compacted and tight. Tannins are perfectly managed. All in harmony. This is from one of the latest harvests ever; it started October 29. So fabulous and so perfect now, why wait? But will age for decades. 99 points.

The Winery

Giacomo Conterno

The father and son duo, Giacomo and Giovanni Conterno, are known by many in Piedmont as the masters of Barolo for producing legendary Monfortino wines. Following the end of World War I, Giacomo sought out to make Barolo with great aging potential, which came to be known as one of the firsts to be made in the ‘classic’ Barolo style.

The tradition continues today as Roberto Conterno, Giovanni’s son, produces some of the best Piedmont wines each year according to many wine critics. Monfortino wines have stood the test of time, and have won over Barolo lovers from all over the world.
