Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Monfalletto 2007
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The historical single-body vineyard area of 28 hectares (69 acres), rare for the area, extends over all sides of the hill. The land has always been cultivated with the various local varieties, selected and distinctly planted according to sun exposure, type of soil and the altitude.
Over the course of the last 50 years, Paolo Cordero di Montezemolo and then his son Giovanni, have expanded the grape vine cultivation for wine production for the Winery. The most important acquisition was an old vineyard of over 2 hectares in the Villero cru located in the town of Castiglione Falletto from which the Barolo Enrico VI is produced. Other important investments have been made in the nearby area of Roero that lies just north of the Tannaro River where the family owns and leases a total 8 hectares of vines. Currently, the total vineyard area of grape production for all Cordero di Montezemolo wines is 38 hectares (94 acres).
