Monfortino Giacomo Conterno 1941/ #11434971
Here in the ad an exemplary tale of Barolo Extra Aged Monfortino by Giacomo Conterno from 1941
Excellent condition despite the age, in fact the label shows signs of wear and the level of the joint has just decreased but the color has remained perfect
Giacomo Conterno's Monfortino is one of the most prestigious red wines in Italy, a true legend of the Langhe. Monfortino is a Barolo, an expressive, deep and territorial Barolo, just like the cellar founded by the Conterno family in 1900. The first time a Monfortino label appeared was in 1924, as the vineyards were mostly near Monforte d 'Alba, while since 1974 Monfortino has been produced with grapes from Vigna Francia di Serralunga d'Alba.
The bunches are chosen with care and abundance, vinification takes place through an alcoholic fermentation process in oak vats with maceration on the skins; subsequent malolactic fermentation in oak barrels from Austria. The refinement lasts 84 months and is carried out in large barrels.
Barolo Monfortino has an intense garnet red color, the olfactory notes are divided into mint and flowers, with hints of violet, roses, wisteria, licorice and cloves. The taste, at the moment of tasting, is tenacious and balanced, accompanied by a note of tannic acid, sweet and nuanced, with a long persistence.
Barolo Monfortino is a wine of great longevity, already of the highest quality if drunk when it is released on the market, but it is recommended to let it rest in the cellar to better appreciate its great qualities that will mature over time. Monfortino can be left to rest in the cellar for more than 20 years.
Monfortino is a traditional Barolo produced with Nebbiolo grapes of the best quality and with a unique characteristic: It is able to age in an excellent way for tens of years. Even after many years of aging they do not seem to affect the quality of this wine.
