1997 Giacomo Conterno, Barolo Riserva, Monfortino (RT97+) Penetrating in its explosive bouquet and built on a massive frame of uber-ripe red fruits, plums, pungent smoke and a framework of steely minerality, the infant Monfortino is the only wine which approaches the Cannubi Boschis in terms of sheer volume of fruit packed into the bottle. Yet the profile is vastly different leaning more toward Barolo as we know it, but still straying a bit outside the defining boundaries of Barolo. Seriously exotic, it will show best a decade down the road. Drink 2022-2042 Tasted November 2007
