Giacomo Conterno Monfortino, Barolo 1987, 750ml


1 in stock.
"While many producers have said the 1987 Barolo vintage was average in quality, Conterno enjoyed great success. The 1987 Monfortino is unquestionably the Barolo of the vintage. Its saturated dark color and huge nose of truffles, tar, and sweet tobacco tinged with black-cherry fruit are followed by a wine with gobs of glycerin, amazing power and richness, and a monstrously long, tannic finish. A great wine from a so-so vintage, it should be at its best between 1997-2020. Those of you who love wine loaded with lavish new oak, sweet, crunchy fruit, and squeaky clean, simple flavors should be sure to taste this wine before you decide to buy. Though a fabulous wine, it is not for everybody." RP
