The 2006 Barolo Riserva Monfortino, on the other hand, is a powerhouse. I haven t tasted the 2006 much recently, as I know exactly what is in store: a huge, towering Barolo in need of considerable cellaring. Searing tannins give this dark, intense Barolo its distinctly brooding feel. Deep and massively structured, the 2006 is a Monfortino for the ages. I would be in no rush to open it.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2046
