2015 Cordero di Montezemolo "Monfalletto" Barolo

SKU #1423542 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of walnuts, dried strawberries, vanilla and cedar lead to a palate that has a smooth core of sweet red-plum and cherry flavors. This will fill out nicely in the next few years, around a core of really fresh and vibrant red fruit. Try from 2023. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Monfalletto is a name registered to the Cordero di Montezemolo family. However, the 2015 Barolo Monfalletto actually sees most (about 70%) of its fruit come from the Gattera cru and the rest from the Annunziata vineyard, both located in La Morra. The family feels that Monfalletto could be its own MGA, but that never happened. In the portfolio lineup, this wine counts as the entry-level Barolo, or a 'classico' Barolo, as this category is more appropriately known locally. The wine offers elegantly minty aromas with more red fruit aromas than black fruit per se. There are distinct floral notes of violets and rose bud that give the wine an immediately attractive and accessible personality. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Cordero di Montezemolo's 2015 Barolo Monfalletto is a very pretty wine. Kirsch, sweet red cherry, pine, tobacco and menthol are all amped up in this generous, radiant, yet mid-weight Barolo. Time in bottle will allow the tannins to soften and let the underlying succulent fruit to emerge fully. There is certainly plenty to look forward to. The tannins could use a bit of time to soften, but otherwise, the 2015 Monfalletto is very nicely done. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2019)
