Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino

725.00

Words are lame when it comes to describing our senses and emotions. And describing a wine as complex and dashing as the 2008 Monfortino Riserva is like chasing butterflies without a net. I will say that it is showing remarkably well right now, probably due to a cold October that extended the growing season. The expressive nose speaks of bright red cherry and a mixed bouquet of red and purple flowers. Spices and herbs are evident, too. This is a wine of finesse, not power, and oh, what finesses there is.
