2013 vintage notes
Fantastic Barolo. Deeply aromatic -- one sniff and you'll be thirsty. Brown spices and savory umami elements combine with a beautiful finesse and fullness, delivering Morello cherry and blood orange. Seamless and surprisingly elegant in tannin but with superb flavor cling, you will thoroughly enjoy this today if, like me, you can't resist young Barolo. Drink now through 2026. - Marcus
92+ points Vinous, Antonio Galloni: "Cordero di Montezemolo's 2013 Barolo Monfalletto is radiant, open-knit and quite pleasing, even at this early stage. The 2013 has more than enough fruit to play off its tannins and acidity. Sweet red cherry, plum, blood orange and pomegranate give the 2013 its racy, bold personality. The 2013 has a bit more depth and mid-palate pliancy than the 2012 tasted alongside it. I would prefer to drink this stylish, mid-weight Barolo over the near and medium term. All the elements fall into place effortlessly."
