Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Monfalletto 1974

Member Review by Eric Guido:

This bottle was popped and carefully poured immediately with a small amount decanted to remove sediment at the end. The color faded from red to amber and into an orange rim. On the nose, at first I found leather, green stems, cedar and dried flowers but as the wine opened it became more and more fragrant as cinnamon, coca and dried cherries became prominent. It was a dream to sit and enjoy the bouquet alone. The palate was balanced and perfectly resolved, feeling like silk across the tongue with flavors of red fruit, mulling spices and herbal tea. It was so vibrant and fresh for such an old bottle of wine. The finish showed dried cranberry and lasted half a minute. This was an experience that I’ll remember for a long time.
