Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barolo Riserva Monfortino 2006


Lobenberg: Monfortino. Weißer Lehm und Eisen in der heißen Mitte des Amphitheaters Cascina Francia. Penibelste biologische Weinbergsarbeit. Handarbeit aus winzigen Erträgen. Im Holz vergoren, im großen Holz für viele Jahre ausgebaut. Ein Kultwein auf dem gleichen Level wie die Granbussia von Cousin Aldo Conterno. Power, ungeheuer tannin- und säurereich und doch Massen an ultrazarter roter Kirsche. Marzipan, helle Schokolade, feiner Tabak. Zum Kauen dicht, Teer und Lakritze, und doch auch extrem definiert und voller Finesse. Zeit geben und nach 20 Jahren niederknien vor diesem Monument. 100/100


Parker über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- Parker: Tasted from botte number 45, the 2006 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is gorgeous. Roberto tells me, “Monfortino is not a drinking wine, it’s a chewing wine.” His comment makes perfect sense and offers incredible insight into the profound beauty beholden before us. You almost feel the crunch of the young tannin and the snap of its presence in the mouth. The bouquet is perfectly matched to the wine. Elegance and finesse add contrast to the wine’s sheer power and determination. Dried rose, licorice, tar, spice and tobacco show immense definition and focus. The 2006 vintage is noted for its extraordinary aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045. 98-100/100


Galloni über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- Galloni: I often suggest readers who want to taste young Monfortinos do so right after release, as the wine often shuts down. Maybe it is the gorgeous London spring day, but the 2006 is wonderfully open and expressive for a young Monfortino. Today, the 2006 looks like a modern-day version of the 1999. The sinewy, muscular tannins ensure decades of magnificent drinking lie ahead. Tasted from magnum. -- Antonio Galloni 98/100


WS über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- WS: Deep, complex aromas of cherry, tar, leather and licorice signal this powerful yet fresh red. Shows great intensity to the sweet cherry fruit, accented by mineral and eucalyptus hints. Vibrant, with the firm structure driving the very long aftertaste. The gripping tannins will need time to soften.—Tasted non-blind at the winery (November 2013). Best from 2020 through 2040. –BS 98/100


Suckling über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- Suckling: This fantastic Barolo of the 2006 vintage shows amazing fruit character of ripe strawberry and orange peel, and great structure. Its length and linear style is glorious; it goes on for minutes. Will be even better in 2020. 98/100
