The "Monfortino" is only made in the best vintages and is a selection of the best grapes from the vineyard. After harvesting, this part is also vinified separately and stored for at least 7 years in large Slovenian oak barrels. The Barolo Riserva Monfortino 2013 has now been safely housed in a bottle after being allowed to mature in barrels and bottles for almost 6 years. The wine was bottled in June 2018 and will not be released until November 2019.

Warm aromas of plums, rose petals and herbs with hints of sandalwood. A bit tender. Full body, dense central palate with glorious fruit and a fantastic finish. Very, very polished and fine tannins. A great Monfortino and we won't waste any further on this. The Montfortino is the Chateau Petrus from Piedmont. Extremely good, scarce and with an almost unlimited life. The 2013 has received 98-100 points from Parker and 99 points from James Suckling
