Cordero di Montezemolo's wines are very pretty. This is particularity true in 2015, a vintage associated with ripe, generous fruit – the Monfalletto is very Pinot Noir. With beautiful aromatics of dried flowers, lavender and violets followed by delicate textures and elegant tannins on the palate, the wine is most seductive. Generally the wines of La Morra do have more elegant, smooth tannins. Predominately sandy soils provide the harmonious elegance that is the hallmark of La Morra. Any visit to Barolo should include a panoramic, patio lunch at Bovio – a spectacular view of the Barolo region from the La Morra hill. The Barolo Enrico VI hails from grand cru Villero located across the vista south east in Casteglione Falletto, altogether a different wine. I love what they do with Nebbiolo at Cordero di Montezemolo.

All of the fruit in the 2015 Barolo Enrico VI comes from Villero, the vineyards just outside the town walls of Castiglione Falletto. These calcareous limestone clay soils, with lots of iron and magnesium, traditionally allow for more finesse and lighthearted elegant aromas. However, this warm vintage shows more black fruit and is characterized by balsamic and other herbal intensity with licorice and aniseed. It offers great structure and a richness that really sticks to the palate. This would be a great choice for lamb with mint sauce.
