Tasted blind. Tawny color, looks younger than the 78 Giacosa next to it. Almost opaque. Notes of tart cherries, rhubarb, black fruit and earth. Silky in the mouth. Seems young still. The Monfortino is more rich and round than the Giacosa but the Giacosa is more complex and intriguing. A memorable mano y mano battle, thanks Murray!

1978 Giacomo Conterno Monfortino Riserva. Drank at Osteria w John B and K. K thought it was a bit disappointing. Harsh, high acid, and no roundness to it. Relative to the disaster of the 1996 Riserva Soldera we ordered off the menu, I thought it was alright. Def a bit harsh and one note tho.
