Barolo Monfortino Riserva Giacomo Conterno 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In years of outstanding quality, a selection is made while the Nebbiolo grapes are still on the vines, and the very best are reserved to become Monfortino.

A saturation of wild cherry, chamomile, slightly spicy heather and pink peppercorn aromas fill the nose. This is just so intensely fruity, with smoky, mineral and menthol notes adding complexity. Chewy with powerful acidity and packed with ripe tannins, this is powerful, deep and packed with wild berry fruit, steeped tea, and dried herbs flavors. The mineral backbone here is phenomenal, and while this is very tannic, it is also very focused and tense with a long finish that, this keeps hammering away on the palate. Imagine smashing cherries on limestone with an old wooden hammer. Now imagine loving that. 96pts
