Modern? Maybe, but there is so much to love about the 2000 Percristina. Intense dark fruit, sweet spice, and floral tones dominate the bouquet. It was so giving yet still slightly retrained by sweet tannin on the palate. Dried cherry, inner floral tones and minerals lingered long throughout the finish. I can't image where this will go but I hope I have a chance to taste it again.

Tannins have melted- earthy and delicate. Lots of oak used here and spice notes

Nice though tight fine tannins. Needs years. Good balance. More modern style but lovely.

Unfortunately, somewhat oxidized. Still, there was enough fruit and power to know that it could have been great.

Stunner. The layers are pealing off this beauty. I'm a believer in Monforte.

Felt like a good Barolo from 1982/1985. Surprised to find it "only" 15 years old.

Tasted with Domineco at the winery in Monforte. "Modern" style Barolo, but also one of the pioneers of the region. Riper year but an amazing wine. Dried tea, violets, plum
