Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino 1998
"Dark red. The 1998 Monfortino is a monumental effort. It opens with a huge nose of licorice, roses, and cocoa, then flows onto the palate with masses of sweet concentrated dark fruit that go on forever. Notes of mineral and leather gradually develop in the glass, adding further complexity, as this great wine begins to reveal its expansive and profound personality...97." Antonio Galloni 11/05.
