"The 2018 Barolo Le Coste di Monforte is a gentle, surprisingly open-knit wine from a site where Barolos tend to show quite a bit more muscle. Then again, this is 2018. Effusive floral and spice aromatics meld into a core of sweet red-fleshed fruit. Orange peel, cinnamon and rose petal lift the bright, vibrant finish very nicely. The 2018 is impeccably done. Drinking window 2023-2030."

"Monforte d'Alba. Just mid ruby. A perfumed cherry fruit nose loaded with spice. Supple and elegant and focused cherry and ripe red fruit. Long powdery tannins clinging to the fruit. Great length. Hugely pleasurable. (WS)"
