95 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "[$65 list] The 2019 Barolo Monfalletto (made with organic fruit selection from across the vineyards that surround the winery in La Morra) shows grit, density and rich texture. 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. Drink: 2025-2043. (Aug 2023)"

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. Best from 2026 through 2045. (11/30/23)"

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. Drink in 2026 and onwards. (6/19/23)"

93 points Aldo Fiordelli (Decanter): "Monfalletto is a blend of all the vineyards from the Cordero di Montezemolo estate – over 14 hectares in Barolo. The 2019 is dark in the glass, with a complex nose of dark cherry, blood orange and blood. Dense and concentrated, it shows firm, dusty tannins and is very extracted on the mid palate, supported by fresh fruit and acidity. There's a tight-knit structure here, a bit rustic on the finish most likely due to its youth. Should age well. Drinking Window: 2023-2045. (Feb 2023)"

93 points Falstaff Guide: "Bright ruby red with garnet highlights. On the nose, ripe blackberry and wild berries, dark chocolate and liquorice. On the palate, body and fruit aromas as well as tight tannin that would benefit from further ageing. (Oct 2023)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2020 Barolo Monfalletto is a pretty serious wine. Dark and ample, with big tannins, the 2020 is a rich, dense Monfalletto that is going to need a number of years to come into its own. This is an especially dense, potent La Morra Barolo built on texture. Red fruit, blood orange, spice and new leather underscore this very rich wine. Drink: 2024-2034. (Jan 2024)"
