    May 23, 2017 - Day 2 in Piedmont (Giacosa, Conterno, & Cavallotto) (Piedmont, Italy): Barrel sample.

    A real treat to try this even in its infancy. Technically, this is still Francia Barolo while in barrel, but it is destined for a Monfortino designation in time. The aromas were very perfumed and floral with elements of pepper, dark floral notes, subtle earth, & some tar notes. The palate was really complex. We did not have large samples so it was hard to let the wine wash over you...but from what I could tell this has a beautiful core of red fruits, earth, & spices. Beautiful wine...will need time.
