The 2013 Barolo Monvigliero really jumps out, thanks to its larger-than-life flavor profile and its impressive intensity. The wine shows ripe fruit aromas of dark cherry and plum, but it balances those aromas very nicely against spice, dark tobacco and crushed mineral. The effect is elegant and polished, and the tannins add ample support at the back. This wine promises a slow evolution over time. Paolo Scavino raises the banner high for the Monvigliero cru.- Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Such focused and precise fruit on the nose with a lovely ripeness of plums, flowers and light hazelnuts. Full-bodied, velvety and polished. Very pretty finish. Chewy now but will soften with time.=-James Suckling

Aromas of red berry, rose petal, blue flower, crushed herb and a whiff of espresso lift out of the glass along with a menthol note. The taut vibrant palate offers crushed strawberry, tart cherry, white pepper and star anise alongside tightly knit fine-grained tannins. It's extremely elegant but still youthfully austere at this stage so give it several more years to unwind. Drink 2023–2038. — Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast

A suave red, this exhibits bright cherry, strawberry, iron, tar and tobacco flavors. Harmonious, with civilized, integrated tannins providing support. Shows terrific texture and spicy length. Best from 2019 through 2036. 487 cases made, 225 cases imported.-Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

One of the highlights in this range, the 2013 Barolo Monvigliero is creamy, sweet and also unusually supple for a young Barolo. Hints of rose petal, dried herb, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco gradually open up in a wine that is more giving on the palate than it is in its aromatics. The 2013 needs time for the classic Monvigliero perfume to emerge fully. There is more than enough precision, energy and tension to make me think that will come in time.-Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
Verduno. Lustrous mid ruby with orange tinges. Soft, perfumed fresh nose with a little bit oak. Very fine long-lasting tannins and red fruit running along it. Lithe yet with a powerful structure. Transparent. Gorgeous seductive oak notes. -Walter Speller, Jancis Robinson
