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.

Packaged in its distinctive light blue label, the Cordero di Montezemolo 2019 Langhe Arneis is a brilliant and crystalline white wine that shines bright from the glass. This refreshing Arneis offers a terrific balance between orchard fruit and nectarine, contrasted against white mineral and wild sage. You get that distinctive richness that is offered by this grape, with extra glycerin softness, but the overall effect is fresh, crisp and bright. Well done.
