Giacomo Conterno Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo 2000

$949

Conterno's 2000 Barolo Riserva Monfortino explodes from the glass with a luxurious, expansive personality that leaves me speachless. Endowed with generous ripe fruit, it is a seamless, seductive Monfortino that possesses incredible length as well as purity in a style that perfectly encapsulates the qualities of the vintage. With air, suggestions of roses, cocoa, tar and anise emerge to complete this magnificent expression of Barolo from Serralunga. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Still a baby, but drinks beautifully if opened an hour in advance.

2000 Conterno Monfortino Barolo Reserva. Decanted 1.5 hours before serving and it was still opening up. Could easily have decanted this 3 hours in advance. Still, it was approachable and a very elegant wine. Tons of tannin and structure. ACan see how this wine will develop into a superstar. Really plush wine. Dark fruit on the front, oriental spice, cedar and earth notes on the finish.
