Cordero di Montezemolo's wines are very pretty. This is particularity true in 2016, 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.


This shows a lot of tar and roses with dried strawberries as well. Full-bodied with very, very fine tannins that coat your mouth, yet they are so velvety and set up the overall, focused and pure-fruit impression of the wine. Fantastic young Barolo. From organically grown grapes. Better in 2026, when the tannins will be more resolved.
