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

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.

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.

One of my fav Barolo producers that is becoming harder to find. Youthful & structured that has an elegant & silky mouthfeel. Needs more time but still showing a perfumed nose of red cherry, berry fruits, leather, sweet, savory spices & rose petal

Burlotto’s Monvigliero never fails to impress with its cherry, strawberry fruits, licorice, rose petal & tobacco in a floral, elegant style. Better in 5 yrs but hard to keep my hands off.

This was a little more shut down than past btls but with air revealing its greatness. Whole cluster showing lots of purity & elegance with notes of cherry, strawberry fruits, spice, rose petal & violet. Beautiful balance & length that needs more time but hard to resist now.

One of my favorite Producers of Barolo. The Monvigliero with its elegance, floral, silky texture along with its whole cluster is youthful, structured showing lots of cherry, strawberry fruits, savory spice, herbs, rose petal & tobacco. Consistent with my many prior notes.

A beautiful drinking Barolo that is youthful but very approachable showing a perfumed nose of cherry, strawberry, cranberry, orange peel with a basket of fresh cut flowers, whole cluster that is elegant, floral with a silky texture.

This needed some air to open showing lots of floral & spice with notes of red cherry, strawberry, plum, orange peel, dried herbs, leather, tobacco & violets. This will need a few more years but should be another great vintage for this wine.
