The Good Juice

“Thrilling, utterly captivating wines”

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. Today the estate is run by the talented Alberto Cordero di Montezemolo. 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. We have a small allocation of the two single vineyard wines, Gattera and Enrico VI, the wines are packaged in three bottle boxes and are priced at $114.95 and $134.95 respectively per bottle, this is a private order we will be placing in the next few weeks for delivery late summer.

Notes on the 2013 Vintage

In 2013, a cool growing season and late harvest produced gorgeous Barolos with striking aromatics, silky tannins, sculpted, vibrant fruit and mid-weight structures. Readers will find a number of thrilling, utterly captivating wines that speak to the pedigree and class that are the signatures of the best Barolo vintages.

The 2013 Barolo Gattera is sensual, open-knit and quite expressive. Red cherry, plum, mint, chocolate, leather and deeply spiced notes shape this radiant, supple Barolo from the Gattera vineyard in La Morra. The 2013 naturally needs time to soften, but it's only a matter of time before the wine's inviting personality is on full display. Scents of rose petal, chocolate, sweet red cherry and a dash of French oak add sweetness through to the finish. Naturally, the 2013 needs time to soften, but it is quite expressive, even today.

The 2013 Barolo Enrico VI is fabulous. The deeply spiced bouquet, firm spine of tannin and dark fruit are all signatures of this renowned Castiglione Falletto site. Explosive and powerful yet very much medium-bodied in build, the 2013 exudes pedigree. Succulent black cherry, menthol, licorice, cedar and new leather add the final shades of nuance. This is one of the best young versions of the Enrico VI I can remember tasting.


The 2013 Barolos in the Glass…

The 2013 Barolos generally possess striking aromatics, silky tannins that are the result of a long growing season, sculpted, vibrant fruit and mid-weight structures. When the 2013s were younger, I thought they would turn out along the lines of the 2010s, but over the last year in particular, many 2013s have acquired a level of textural finesse and grace that is truly remarkable. In many cases, the 2013s remind me of the 2008s, but with more depth, better balance and more consistency. If that sounds appealing, well, it is. Overall, the 2013s are Barolos that speak to finesse above all else. These are wines that will hold considerable appeal to readers who enjoy classically built wines. The 2013s have a good bit of supporting structure, but not the explosiveness or austerity found in vintages such as 2006 or 2010. Although I don’t think the 2013 quite reaches the sheer thrill factor of 2010, but it comes very close.
