Cordero di Montezemolo is an Italian wine producer based in the northeastern wine-producing region of Piedmont. The estate is primarily planted to Nebbiolo for the production of its select range of Barolo wines, from its Barolo Riserva Gorette, to the single-vineyard Enrico VI Barolo and Barolo Chinato.

The Cordero di Montezemolo family have been the proprietors of the Monfalletto estate in Barolo since the 14th Century. Today the management of the estate falls to Giovanni Cordero di Montezemolo and his two children, Elena and Alberto. Together, they oversee the management of 38 hectares (94 acres) of vineyards mainly planted to Nebbiolo, with smaller quantities of Barbera, Dolcetto, Chardonnay and Arneis.
Barolo
Located in the North-West rolling hills of Piedmont, Italy just south of Alba 'Barolo' is an appellation steeped in tradition and history. The now DOCG status region is renowned for producing some of Italy's finest red wines from 100% Nebbiolo.

The wines made are typically fragrant and tannic with a depth of flavour and finesse like no other earning them the coveted title of ‘the King of Wines’ for centuries. Winemaking practices vary within the defined methods that the DOCG allows but there is a distinct modern and traditional divide in preferred styles.

The region has two major soil types - a sandy Tortonian marl producing a softer wine and a Helvetian sandstone clay that is known for a more robust style. The continental climate, with a long summer and late autumn enables the fickle grape to reach the perfect ripeness to create these stunning wines.

Muscular and buff for the vintage with plenty of plum, terra-cotta and dry soil aromas and flavours. Full body, flavourful finish.

Exotic spice, French oak, mature berry, menthol and a floral note are some of the aromas you'll find on this structured red. The ripe, chewy palate presents mature black cherry, raspberry compote, espresso, licorice and aromatic herb while firm fine-grained tannins provide support. Drink 2019–2027.
