Tasting Notes & Critical Acclaim:
94 points Wine Advocate
"A certified organic wine, the Cordero di Montezemolo 2018 Barolo Monfalletto has some candied cherry, pressed violet and earthy or ferrous notes that create a long and very polished finish. This wine is made with a selection of fruit from La Morra with vineyards that extend under a towering cedar of Lebanon that has become a symbol of Barolo over its long lifespan. Black licorice appears on the close. (ML)" (8/2022)
93 points James Suckling
"Lots of dusty spice to the red berries on the nose, developing into oak notes of the medium to full palate. There’s plenty of structure and firmness here and a long, firm finish of spicy oak and fruit. From organically grown grapes. Wait for this to develop. Try from 2025." (10/2022)
91 points Vinous
"The 2018 Barolo Monfalletto is a bold, fruity wine that should drink well with minimal cellaring. Although not an especially subtle wine, the 2018 offers lovely forward red/plum fruit and plenty of immediacy. Cinnamon, rose petal, spice and blood orange fill out nicely over time. This is an especially juicy, fruity style. Give the tannins a year or two to soften. (AG)" (11/2021)
Pairing: An aristocratic wine that finds its match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, saddle of venison, wild boar, deer, and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white Alba truffle: cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.
At the very heart of the Langhe, square in the center of the Barolo region, there is a cedar tree that has stood over 30 hectares of vines for 150 years. Year after year, this prized stretch of land works silently to produce some of the wines that have made Piedmont famous all over the world.
The Monfalletto estate belonged to the noble Falletti family for over six centuries before becoming the property of Giovanni Cordero di Montezemolo and his children, Elena and Alberto. In 1940, the farmland was handed down to the next eligible heir Paolo Cordero di Montezemolo (father of Giovanni), grandson of the Marchioness Luigia Falletti, who for years had helped his grandmother take care of the vineyards and process the grapes. In the years afterward, Paolo provided the major push in research and experimentation in winemaking and wine tasting, as well as in marketing the company's wine on a global scale, which until then had only been limited to regional sales.
Today Monfalletto – Cordero di Montezemolo is one of the most historic and dynamic presences in the Barolo area, with highly esteemed products that are exported and appreciated around the world.
