    March 31, 2019 - Primary but surprisingly approachable given the smooth tannins. Meld of soil notes, dark fruit and dark savory spices. Great raw material here. 97+

    January 7, 2019 - A quartet of Monfortino tonight (1971, 1997, 2001, 2010). All were in great shape, and all were very, very good. For me the surprising standout, given it's youth, was the young 2010 (decanted seven hours). Just a baby but it's drinking amazingly well. A fantastic nose on opening, and a sweetness on the palate that belied it's power. Simply outstanding. One of our group of four literally fell in love with the 2001 (decanted five hours), and I understood why. It was beguiling, and improved the most over the three hour dinner. I've been less excited about 1997 Barolos over time than others. And this perfect provenance magnum of 1997 Monfortino was very good, but for me just not as exciting as the other three. The 1971 was terrific, and easily could be called too young. A fine representation of Monfortinos, and a very enjoyable flight.

    December 11, 2017 - Perfection, even at this relatively young stage. Has decades ahead of it and will stand along with some of the best Monfortino vintages ever.

    December 3, 2017 - GRANDI NEBBIOLI DA VINOGODI: Naso da mallo di noce, scuro, concentrato, tanto sul frutto. Profondo e tridimensionale, ma non pesante.
    C' è tanta dolcezza e maturità di frutto, il corpo è mastodontico e completamente opposto alla leggerezza e all' eleganza del 2008.
    Ricorda molto il 2006 appena uscito, tanta estrazione, caramello, legno fumé e tannino amaro, fittissimo, quasi compresso. L' acidità è meno sensibile, perchè nascosta da strati di frutto.
    Ricorda un Grand Cru di Claude Dugat e al momento è veramente di difficile lettura. Il naso è già da grande vino, la bocca chi lo sa.... tra 20 anni.....Se cercate eleganza, lasciate perdere....

    November 19, 2017 - Impressive wine. Very aromatic and spicy, fullbodied with a huge backbone, but at the same time balanced and beautiful. Very complex, balsamic, meat, game, olives, caramel, minerals. Great length.
