Lot #473. Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino 2001

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 99 AG.
"The 2001 Barolo Riserva Monfortino flows from the glass with stunning depth and purity. This seamless, elegant Barolo caresses the palate with incredible persistence as layers of aromas and flavors develop in the glass. Stylistically it is very much like the 2001 Cascina Francia, only with more intensity, depth and sheer volume. Monfortino has always had power to spare, but in 2001 it is also incredibly elegant, something that previous vintages have only acquired with significant bottle age. This is a towering, majestic Monfortino that will rightfully take its place among the very finest Monfortinos ever made." Wine Advocate #179, Oct 2008
Provenance: The Friendship Cellar
Notes: Base neck, lightly wrinkled capsule, lightly torn, very lightly scuffed, very lightly damp stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,600
