About this wine
Conterno's 2001 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is an imposing and gigantic wine. Layers of fragrant and sweet fruit flow through the palate in this gentle, refined yet powerful Monfortino. Hints of sweet red berries, roses, licorice and spices envelop the deeply resonant finish. This is another wine that requires patience. Expected maturity: 2021-2041.
Offers sweet plum and sultana aromas, with hints of citrus fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft, sweet tannins and cedar, cappuccino and sweet fruit flavors. Long and gorgeous. Hard not to drink now. Best after 2012.
Can you believe Conterno’s 2001 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is next? Neither can I. What a wine. Sweet, perfumed and also massively endowed in every dimension, the 2001 Monfortino is another wine that pushes all the right buttons.
