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.

The 2016 Barolo Monfalletto is a gorgeous wine that shows just how fabulous the year is. Bright, floral and light on its feet, the 2016 is all class. The elegance and refinement of La Morra come through loud and clear in a mid-weight, aromatically expressive Barolo that hits all the right notes. Best of all, the 2016 will drink well right out of the gate. This is such a gorgeous and classy wine. Wow.

The fruit here straddles the cross-junction between red and black, delivering black raspberries, red and dark plums and cherries and double-colored licorice stick. Tightly wound with stringy tannins and loads of savory undertones to match boisterous cherries and berries. Medium-to full-bodied and very minerally on the finish. Drink from 2023.
