Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet color, with perfectly mixed floral and spicy qualities in the nose. Notes of licorice, cherries in liqueur, cacao and fresh raspberries. Rich, full-bodied and elegant on the palate.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Round and forward, showing cherry and strawberry flavors, this is pure and focused, with a bright structure underlining the fruit. Offers lovely balance and a lingering finish. Best from 2013 through 2027. 3,750 cases made.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Barolo Monfalletto is another superb-entry-level Barolo. The essences of crushed flowers, spices, roses and tobacco come together beautifully in this mid-weight, refined Barolo. The Monfalletto shows wonderful mid-palate density and fabulous overall balance in a pure style that recalls some of the great past vintages here. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027.

Cordero di Montezemolo
Since 1340, 19 generations one after another, have managed the Monfalletto property in the town of La Morra, the center of the production of Barolo wine. Even today, the property is entirely family-run. Giovanni Cordero di Montezemolo and his children Elena and Alberto are the protagonists of this millennium.

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).

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular and age-worthy wines at its best. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.
