The Monprivato Barolo, bottled only in outstanding and excellent vintages, is a wine with excellent body, subtle bouquet, delicate tar, a lingering aftertaste, an unmistakable clear elegance, and the ability to evolve in a very positive way over time whilst maintaining extraordinary youth and freshness.
The wine presents with a garnet red color with orange-colored highlight. The aroma is complex, fruity, elegant and intense. On the palate, the wine has an excellent, masculine,structure and body and a finish that is long and full.

Detailed and fragrant, offering floral, strawberry, cherry, licorice and spice flavors, this is elegant and underlined by a strong mineral streak. Well-proportioned, picking up intensity and complexity on the long, savory finish. Extremely fresh and classy.

What a pleasure it is to check in on the 2008 Barolo Monprivato, a wine that is just beginning to open up texturally. The aromas and flavors still need time to fully develop, but there is little question the 2008 is a beautiful Barolo. Today, it is the wine's delicate, perfumed personality that is most apparent. The 2008 continues to grow in the glass, but how much weight it puts on in bottle is really anyone's guess.
