Winemaker's Notes:

Barolo Monserra represents the finest wine in the Raineri portfolio. A beautifully lifted nose of rose petal and fresh red fruits is supported by darker tar, earth and wood smoke aromas. The palate has great freshness and depth, nicely balanced by rich fruits and some anise spice. The length and purity of the finish marks this wine as a serious Barolo and stunning value.
My Notes:

About Raineri:

In 2004 Gianmatteo (Jimmy) Raineri and Fabrizio Giraudo met at the wine university in Torino. After some discussion, they decided to have some fun and try their luck in making some wine from a vineyard belonging to Jimmy’s father. A year later, they had about 1000 bottles of Dolcetto and were interested in taking it a bit further by adding Barbera to their list. The results were good and a real passion developed, leading to the serious decision to start producing Barolo. In 2006, Jimmy’s father in law helped by giving the guys the nebbiolo from his vineyard in Perno of Monforte. The harvest of 2006 became the first Barolo vintage for the Raineri team, together with a Langhe Nebbiolo.
