DL on Share The Rare: Giacomo Conterno Monfortino

"Giacomo Conterno Baroli Cascina Francia and Monfortino ... rightly considered by most observers as among the most profound wines in the world.”
~ Antonio Galloni, wine critic

There is so much to say about this legendary wine, as outlined above by Mr Galloni. A rich history spanning three generations to the early 1920's, the very beginning of Barolo wine as we know it. 

I actually do not where to begin, or how to articulate the profound nature of my experience with this wine, and the futile attempts to compare with other life changing moments... so I won't! All I'll say is - any opportunity to get a taste... a drop... let alone a glass should have you crossing town, state, maybe even country. 

If it's your first time with a wine of this stature, we will do as much to make you as comfortable as possible, but beware, your life should not be the same afterwards..
