Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "Sweet tobacco, mint, pine, mocha, wild flowers and leather are just some of the many notes that emerge from the stunning 2006 Barolo Riserva Monfortino. Exotic and aromatically expressive to the core, the 2006 finds superb depth and richness on the palate, all backed up by considerable structure. The 2006 is a huge, towering Barolo. As always, I suggest tasting the wine over the next few months or after age ten at the earliest, as it is likely to shut down hard sometime over the coming months. The 2006 is one of the most tannic Monfortinos in recent memory, right up there with the 1999 and 2002. Conterno fans will not want to miss this riveting, Barolo, a wine with few peers, some of them sitting in the Conterno cellar still unbottled...98+." AG 10/13
98 points, James Suckling, Wine Spectator: "This fantastic Barolo of the 2006 vintage shows amazing fruit character of ripe strawberry and orange peel, and great structure. Its length and linear style is glorious; it goes on for minutes. Will be even better in 2020." 05/14
"Deep, complex aromas of cherry, tar, leather and licorice signal this powerful yet fresh red. Shows great intensity to the sweet cherry fruit, accented by mineral and eucalyptus hints. Vibrant, with the firm structure driving the very long aftertaste. The gripping tannins will need time to soften...98" WS 2014
