Monfortino Riserva, Giacomo Conterno 2006

I won't be at all surprised if, given its massive structure, the 2006 Barolo Riserva Monfortino one day takes its place alongside vintages such as 1999 and 2002. A massive, full-bodied wine, the 2006 captivates all the senses with its sheer structure. At times, though, the 2006 also comes across as weightless and elusive, showing the dualism that makes great Barolo such a fascinating wine. This is a decidedly vertical Monfortino built on a huge frame of tannin. The aromas and flavors aren't fully expressive today. Instead it is the wine's pure density that leaves the most profound lasting impression. With that, the tasting is done, and with good reason. Where do you go from here?
