Lamb fat melting onto hardwood charcoal. Red fruited, long, polished, very fine tannins.

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.

Steal the show at a Dolcetto night. Gorgeous perfumed nose with rose, tar and black tea leaves. Silky tannin, I mean real silky. Couldn’t believe this structure belongs to a 2014 Barolo. Approachable already but please drink very slow.

Sublime. The purity here is just striking. As great as it has always been.

It is damn close to perfection. Not for regular Barolo fans. You need to open your eyes here. Sublime.

Far, far too young, but the potential is clear and worthy of the hype. Still enjoyable and expressive through the wall of youthful tannin.

One of the hotter vintages so it's tasting pretty good despite the youth. Soft tannins, great red berry fruit flavors, soft tobacco and elegant acidity. I could drink this all night.

Those tannins be like... Tarry and super pretty fruit--lots of depth waiting. Will be a beauty down the line. See ya again in 10+ years.
