The 2019 Barolo Monvigliero shows a medium dark garnet appearance with an especially focused quality of fruit. There is wild cherry and Japanese plum, but the Monvigliero cru also delivers crushed rose, earthy iris root, candied orange peel with clove and dustings of black pepper. The wine is exceedingly silky and polished in texture, but its inherent complexity is never diminished. It should be interesting to revisit this bottle after the 10-year mark. This estate was the first to bottle a Monvigliero in 1978, and today 7,000 bottles are made.-Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

The 2019 Barolo Monvigliero is layered with cinnamon, red cherry, white pepper, and apricot and is dry, elegant, and medium-bodied on the palate, with fine tannins and mouthwatering salinity. Revealing notes of orange pith, warming spice, and pomegranate seed, it is long on the palate with a linear approach. Drink 2025-2045.-Audrey Frick, JebDunnuck

The 2019 Barolo Monvigliero, tasted from barrel, is fabulous. Silky and elegant, with tons of energy, the
Monvigliero is showing beautifully today, even as a sample from tank with low SO2 typical of this stage prebottling. Even so, all the translucent finesse of Monvigliero comes through loud and clear. Crushed red berry fruit, chalk, blood orange, mint and white pepper lend brightness. The 2019 is shaping up to be a real beauty. It's one of those young wines that is very hard to spit- Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Aromas of dark cherries, red licorice, sandalwood and chocolate nibs with a bark undertone. Full-bodied with depth and concentration to the fruit and polished, slightly tight and chewy tannins. Hints of bitter spices, dried orange and tar at the end. This needs some time. Try after 2026.-James Suckling

Verduno. Lustrous mid-to-deep ruby. Layers of ripe red fruit with savoury, saline hints. A sensational palate of richness and elegance, with bags of polished tannins that follow the fruit rather than dominating it. Layered finish that shows incredible depth.-Walter Speller, JancisRobinson
