This Barolo is made exclusively from the prestigious Monviglioero Vineyard. Its bouquet presents hints of berry jam, cocoa, eucalyptus and clove, with a palate is as amply rich as the dense ruby-garnet color would suggest. The powerful entry and austere and solid mid-palate lead into a consistent, long and deeply satisfying finish where smooth tannins play the leading role.

Wine EnthusiastMonvigliero is a round, modern wine with sweet aromas of lavender flower, ginger, allspice, bee's wax, redwood and cherry cola. It's sophisticated and builds in intensity the longer it's kept it in the glass. A dusty mineral note appears in the mouth and makes for a drying close. Drink with hearty stews.

Wine SpectatorPlum, cedar and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a dried fruit, fig, fresh mushroom and coffee aftertaste. Stylish. Best after 2010.
