Description

History

Barolo Riserva Monfortino is a legend of Italian red wine, ambassador of the quality of Made in Italy in the world produced by the Giacomo Conterno winery. The Giacomo Conterno winery was founded in 1900 in Monforte d’Alba by Giacomo himself, descendant of a family that has been producing wine since the beginning of the last century. A few years later, in 1912, his son Giovanni would bottle the first Barolo, a rarity at the time as the wine was mainly sold in barrels or demijohns. In 1924 the first vintage of Barolo Monfortino will be produced, so called in honor of the place of origin. 40 years later, in 1974, Cascina Francia in Serralunga d’Alba was purchased; this area is particularly suited to the production of Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes and agriculture will be set according to the qualitative standards that have always been used also for the production of Barolo Monfortino.

Grapes used

Nebbiolo from the Francia vineyard 100%

Production method

The procedure that leads to the creation of such a wine starts from the meticulous attention to each step of the winemaking process that the grapes go through; selection of the individual parcels of the Francia vineyard, further selection of the fruit both during the harvest and upon arrival of the grapes in the cellar, diversified fermentation according to the individual parcels which will then be aged individually in barrels. The wine selected to become Monfortino will age for a total of 6 years in large barrels, but each single lot will be tasted every year to see if it will actually be worthy of becoming Barolo Monfortino, otherwise it will be destined for the production of Barolo Francia. The constant monitoring process ensures that this wine is produced only in the best years.

Alcohol content

14.5%

Tasting notes

The wine has an intense garnet red color in the glass. The nose is harmonious and elegant, perfectly depicting the Langhe terroir: sensations of very ripe red fruit such as cherry jam are combined with hints of dog rose and dried violet. Then there are hints of herbaceous and balsamic notes and spices also arrive in perfect harmony: among the main ones are black pepper, tobacco, vanilla, sandalwood, nutmeg, bitter chocolate and licorice. The taste in the mouth is an experience, an explosion of flavors followed in a perfect elegance, even if only difficult to describe. The finish is ecstatic, long and pleasantly persistent, as is the aftertaste that closes everything. Absolutely to be tried at least once in a lifetime, to understand how a great wine can excite and involve all the senses.

Possible combinations

Is it really important what we pair with such a wine? Technically, the typology goes perfectly with very tasty and long-cooked red meat or game dishes, but we advise you to make yourself comfortable and concentrate on the emotions and sensations that only a legend of this kind can give you.
