The focal point where the Alba Langhe meets Dogliano and the Upper Langhe, Monforte is acknowledged as one of the great capitals of Barolo, to whose production area it has historically belonged.

Barolo at Monforte can draw on a number of prestigious vineyards with a range of soil types and variously-aspected locations. The wines combine structure with elegance, aromatic finesse, solid character and exceptional ageing potential.
