Tasting Notes

Vinous – 96

The 2001 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is a wine that appears to be going through an adolescent, unsettled phase. Several recent bottles have been quite stubborn, but this magnum is a bit better. Elegant and silky in feel, the 2001 gives the impression that it will mature earlier than some of the surrounding vintages. I know that will surprises more than a few Vinous readers – it surprises me too – but that’s just the way things look right now. [Antonio Galloni, 02/02/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2041

Robert Parker – 98

Conterno’s 2001 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is a towering, gigantic wine. Layers of sweet perfumed fruit flow across the palate in this gracious, refined yet powerful Monfortino. Hints of sweet red berries, roses, licorice and spices wrap around the deeply resonant finish. This is another wine that begs for patience. Today it is an infant. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2041. Readers fortunate enough to own Conterno’s 2001s would do well to forget about the wines for a good 5-10 years. These are some of the most backward, Barolis of the vintage.
