Fratelli Monchiero

Barolo Nebbiolo 1985

This bottle was the third part of a really fun ensemble of Barolos, generously shared and curated by our friend Tim.

Once again, served blind after a lengthy slow-ox; all the while knowing we were drinking Barolo but that’s it. This bottle had rather obvious signs of age with loads of sediment (though most was decanted off) and a rather pronounced orange rim. On the nose, there was tar for dayzzzz! Secondary characteristics were dominant with dried cherries, balsamico, earth, and truffles. The finish was savory and delicious.

I was sure this was old but I wasn’t sure how old. Revealed as a 1985 Fratelli Monchiero, a producer I was unfamiliar with. Our host mentioned that it came across DOA when the cork was pulled but his experience with old Barolo proved this had a chance to come around; I’m so grateful he showed the patience necessary. A lovely experience.

Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Five hours in the decanter to “break on through”. Plenty of acid, tannins—crystal ball says long life ahead of these. Good fruit, eucalyptus notes, slate, cedar. Tannic finish with a hint of heat. Lovely, but definitely resist the urge for another ten years. Enjoyed as birthday wine with chicken liver ragù. — 7 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Wowza! Even though youthful, unresolved and somewhat closed, this wine exudes beauty and finesse in the making. More old world in style, a pretty translucent garnet color with fine but noticeable tannin. Semi-ripe cherries, leather, and mushroom with hints of orange peel and rose petals. As others have noted, quite Burgundian in style. Strongly recommend, and plan to revisit in 3-5yrs. — 12 days ago
