Winemaker Notes

Intense garnet in color, the nose shows floral and spicy notes perfectly blended: tobacco, cherries, cocoa and fresh raspberry highlights. The palate is rich, full-bodied and elegant. An aristocratic wine that finds its match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, saddle of venison, wild boar, deer and pigeon.

Food Pairing – dishes garnished with white Alba truffle: cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.

About Monfalletto

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. Even today, the property is entirely family-run. Giovanni Cordero di Montezemolo and his children Elena and Alberto are the protagonists of this millennium. 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. In 1965 Paolo Cordero di Montezemolo obtained an important lot of old vines in the center of the famous Villero area in Catiglione Falletto. From this 2-hectares vineyard we pick the grapes for Barolo Enrico VI. Over the years, further acquisitions and long-term leasing of vineyards have been made, not far from the winery headquarter and in the area of Alba and Roero.
