Tasting Notes

The 2014 Barolo Monvigliero is quite refined and gracious, although it is also surprisingly dark, dense and concentrated by this wine's standards. A shy, reticent wine, the 2014 is going to need time in bottle to flesh out, especially in the midpalate. I have seen this with other vintages, and expect that it will be the case here as well. The precision, clarity and silkiness that are so typical of Monvigliero start to emerge as the wine opens up in the glass. Readers should plan on being patient. If that is not possible, try to taste the 2014 as soon as possible, because these wines have a tendency to shut down hard post-bottling. As always, Monvigliero is fermented with 100% whole clusters. Drink between 2022-2044.

Score: 95Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2018

Verduno. Mid ruby with watery orange tinges. Beautiful concentrated nose. Taut and defined, exotic raspberry perfume. Very distinct, this really wakes you up. Exotic raspberry that is super-sleek and polished and coating, firm tannins on the finish. Drink between 2018-2028
