Excellent levels and labels.
The Cordero di Montezemolo family has historical and deep roots in the History of Piedmont and since 1340, 19 generations, one after another, have managed the Monfalletto property in the town of La Morra, the center of the production of Barolo wine.
1968 was a good vintage for Italy and particularly for the heavyweights such as Barolo and Brunello. Whilst the critics do not appear to have visited Barolo in 1968, it was the first vintage for Sassicaia (Italy's most famous Super-Tuscan) and wine critic Robert Parker consistently awards Cordero's Barolos 90+ points.
A Barolo from a producer with roots as deep as it gets, this wine comes highly recommended.
