Media Reviews

Monica Larner

The 2012 Barolo Monprivato is a polished and bright wine that delivers a profound and beautiful array of delicate aromas. These tiny, petite threads of cherry, wild berry, ash, smoked spice and grilled herb converge with unity to produce the intensity and purpose that ultimately defines this beautiful wine. I tasted from two bottles at the winery. One had been opened a few days prior, and the second one`s cork was pulled immediately before I sampled it. This review is based on my impressions from both bottles. The first one sang loud and the second revealed a muted voice. There`s no doubting that this wine needs at least ten more years to evolve. Having said that, I don`t think 2012 has the extreme depth and focus we`ve seen from this vineyard in slightly cooler vintages. 94 points
