Food Pairings for Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino
Editorial Reviews for Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino
Opened around 1:30 pm when the wine showed a very pale bronze color with no red left - exhibiting a very soft nose of bouilion, spice, earth, and porcini - faint in the mouth with good and intact strucutre, no sense of damage just seems very faded with echoing strawberry fruit and a mineral core - arund 8 pm this has filled out well. the nose remains subtle with a base of tarry minerality and some sandy nuances as well as a sappy herb note. In the mouth this is showing beautifull with superb integration, just shy of velvetty with lovely sour cherry fruit over limestone. Finishes a bit short at first but really gains length with time, reallyresonant, the nose gains a big tobacco note too but also begins to reveal a bit of bandaid as well. This gave all it had this evening, at peak and just a great bottle.
EOY BO dinner at Craft. decanted for sediment just prior to drinking. OMFG. these are the bottles that make you seek out great bottles. This wine was extraordinary. The nose was an incredible mix of truffles, sea salt, black cherries and violets. The palate was overwhelming; layered with wave after wave of velvet-y-goodness. It attacked with precision, elegance and richness- the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. Truly magnificent. one of the best and most memorable wines of my life.
