Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 99 DC.
"An historic year and an historic Monfortino. The color is still the classic ‘Barolo’ clear red with coquettish orange nuances that remain lively, transparent and strong. The aromas are more varietal than ever with wild berry jam and, above all, a lot of spice, those spices used for roasts like juniper and cloves, accompanied by the ever-present sweet licorice. These are followed by notes of eucalyptus and pine needles. As always, the mouthfeel is a very precious cloth that caresses the palate." Daniele Cernilli, DoctorWine.it, Jan 2014
Provenance: The Matador Cellar
Notes: Very top shoulder, very lightly scuffed, very lightly corroded capsule, damp stained, lightly mold stained, bin soiled, very lightly scuffed, very lightly torn label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $900
