The 2005 Barolo Riserva Monfortino, also the product of a cool vintage, comes across as a bit nervous today. It is an absolute infant by Monfortino standards, a wine that automatically forces the mind to project into the future. Readers lucky enough to own it will want to wait for at least a few years. Its freshness and energy suggest another few decades of fine drinking are in store. Magnum 96/100 (02.2021) -


Tasting the 2005 Barolo Riserva Monfortino after the Cascina Francia is quite a shock. While the Cascina Francia is quite delicate, the Monfortino is a brute. Deep, dark and massively tannic, the 2005 is going to need as much as another decade to enter the early part of its drinking window. Sweet rose petal and mint notes gradually open up, but only offer a glimpse of what the 2005 will become. Monfortino is never giving in the early going (except right after bottling), so it is not much of a surprise to see it going through and awkward stage. Readers will have to be especially patient. 97/100 (07.2016) -


I am totally taken aback by the 2005 Monfortino. Every other young Monfortino I have tasted from barrel has shown its quality and personality immediately. The 2005 is an exception. A wine that was hard and compact until quite recently, the 2005 is finally starting to open up. The fruit is incredibly pure, precise and brilliant, but the best is yet to come. This is a great showing from the 2005. Tasted from magnum. 97/100 (05.2014) -


A rich, sensual tapestry of dark plums, cherries, smoke, incense, tar and licorice emerges from the 2005 Barolo Riserva Monfortino. Exotic, rich and layered, the 2005 boasts gorgeous depth and a sensual enveloping personality. I am quite amazed at how the 2005 has developed since I last tasted it, in November 2011. The once-firm tannins have never been more elegant than they are today. That said, as good as the 2005 is, it doesn't quite have the thrill factor of the very best vintages. 96/100 (10.2012) -


The 2005 Barolo Riserva Monfortino is a huge, explosive wine endowed with tons of fruit and equally formidable structure. It boasts tremendous length and a brightness in its fruit that suggests it will be very long lived. I have never truly loved the quality of the tannin in the 2005. It will be interesting to see what the next twelve months bring as the wine finishes its elevage in cask. 94-96/100 (04.2012) -
