For the Barolo lover who doesn't want to wait a decade.
From: Piedmont, Italy
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.
Tasting Notes: This shows a lot of tar and roses with dried strawberries as well. Full-bodied with very, very fine tannins that coat your mouth, yet they are so velvety and set up the overall, focused and pure-fruit impression of the wine. Fantastic young Barolo. From organically grown grapes. -James Suckling
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.
