Wine Advocate-Parker : 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.
