Description

The Giacomo Conterno 2014 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is made with 100% fruit from the Francia cru, which is not the case for the 2015 vintage (that sees 22% Arione in the blend) or likely future vintages. In a sense, this 100-point wine represents a milestone or a chapter finale in the long and exciting trajectory of Italy's collected and revered Monfortino. I've had the great fortune of tasting this wine from barrel over the course of four years and twice again this summer during my visits to the Conterno estates (in Gattinara and in Monforte d'Alba). 100/100 AG – Vinous

Producer Information: Giacomo Conterno

The Langhe area of Italy’s Piedmont region is one of the more staggeringly beautiful wine producing regions in the world. Roberto Conterno, now at the helm of Giacomo Conterno, is firmly rooted in this land as were his father, grandfather and great grandfather before him. The estate produces some of the most sought after Barberas and Barolos in all Piedmont.
