Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barolo Riserva Monfortino 2013


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


Galloni über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- Galloni: The 2013 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is a huge, towering wine marked by serious fruit intensity and a backbone of firm, classically austere tannins. Certainly next to the 2014 and 2015, the sheer tannic clout of the 2013 is impossible to miss. Sage mint, tobacco and dried flower notes add striking shades of aromatic nuance, but the 2013 is ultimately distinguished by its huge, potent personality. It is sure to thrill those who own it for many decades to come. In 2013, Roberto Conterno did not bottle his Barolo Francia. Instead, he chose to use all of the fruit for the flagship Barolo Monfortino, which up until the present, he had only done once before, in 2002. 99/100


Suckling über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- Suckling: Warm aromas of plums, rose petal and spices with hints of sandalwood. Some tar. Full body, dense center palate with glorious fruit and fantastic finish. Very, very polished and fine tannins. Vertical and deep. A great Monfortino. Try in 2023. 99/100


Parker über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- Parker: I've been closely following the 2013 Barolo Riserva Monfortino for a few years now with annual tastings of the wine from barrel at the Giacomo Conterno winery in Monforte d'Alba. The last time we saw this wine was in 2010, and I readily gave that edition a perfect 100-point score. Monfortino was not made in 2011 or 2012, so this is the next available vintage. We can expect a finished wine ready for commercial release at the tail end of 2019. My impression of the wine now (one year later from the last barrel tasting) is that it has firmed up significantly in terms of structure and backbone. You can almost hear the crunch as you bite into the fresh and fruity fiber. That unique Monfortino crunchiness makes me think we can safely extend the drinking window on this modern day Italian icon. 98-100/100

Wine Spectator über: Barolo Riserva Monfortino

-- Wine Spectator: Subtle aromas of cherry, wild herb and tobacco introduce this sleek, complex red. Cherry, strawberry, loam, iron and tobacco flavors build in intensity to an extended finish, but the texture and harmony are what define this superb Barolo. Silky, with a fine weave to the dense tannins. All the components come together on the lingering aftertaste. 99/100
