The Nebbiolo that comes off this property is some of the best in La Morra. Even in challenging vintages the Monfalletto terroir yields Nebbiolo that is both powerful and supple. Insiders know that this is one of the best terroirs in Barolo.
95 Points, Robert Parker: "The house style prizes muscle and brawn in this vintage that lends itself handily to these qualities. Pressed cherry and blackberry cede to licorice, cured tobacco and iron ore."
94 Points, Wine Spectator: "A plump, cherry-, raspberry- and tar-flavored red, showing accents of mineral, tobacco and eucalyptus, with a swath of solid tannins guarding the finish. Balanced and long, this should come around soon."
94 Points, James Suckling: "Attractive aromas of black cherry with strawberry and hints of vanilla and cedar. Some sandalwood. Medium body. Ultra-fine tannins integrate beautifully into the wine. Plenty of fruit flavors and length. Juicy."

From Michele Reverdito’s favourite cru comes Barolo Bricco Cogni, planted by Silvano Reverdito in 1967, the year he was married. An aromatic powerhouse in 2016 with dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and licorice all melding beautifully together. This is super-impressive in the early going. Truly a Barolo of class and character, the Bricco Cogni has so much to offer.
Beautiful red color. Intense nose of red fruits. Well-balanced on the palate with round and integrated tannins. Supple and easy-drinking wine. Best served with grilled meats, roasts, salads or soft cheeses.
100% Bonicaire (an indigenous Spanish grape)
Fragrant red fruit aromas with hints of currant, ripe strawberries and orange zest. Fresh yet soft on the palate, with mouthwatering herbs tinged with a dash of spice.
