Cordero di Montezemolo

The Cordero di Montezemolo estate lies in the heart of the Langhe district of Alba. The Montezemolos are descendants of the Falletti family whose lineage and presence in Monfalletto can be traced back to medieval times. The majority of the family’s vineyards are located in the Annunziata district near the town of La Morra which is the most famous of the eleven communes that collectively form the Barolo wine zone. The Estate is dominated by an ancient Cedar of Lebanon tree which rests at the top of the hill overlooking the vineyards, a view now enjoyed from the ultra-modern tasting room. By no means traditionalists, the Montezemolo family produce intensely powerful wines to international acclaim. The wines regularly score highly in publications such as Wine Spectator, who included no less than three Montezemolo wines in their Top 100 Wines of 2014. The impressive expansion over the last few years of the barrique cellar and the striking tasting room has been coupled with an adoption of low environmental impact practices throughout the vineyards and winery and in 2013, the family began the process for organic certification. www.corderodimontezemolo.com
