2001 Barolo Monfortino Riserva

Giacomo Conterno

99Average Score
flagNorthern Italy / Italy

Conterno’s 2001 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is a towering, gigantic wine. Layers of sweet perfumed fruit flow across the palate in this gracious, refined yet powerful Monfortino. Hints of sweet red berries, roses, licorice and spices wrap around the deeply resonant finish. This is another wine that begs for patience. Today it is an infant. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2041. ||Readers fortunate enough to own Conterno’s 2001s would do well to forget about the wines for a good 5-10 years. These are some of the most backward, Barolis of the vintage. eRobertParker.com.April, 2012
