While the commune of Monforte d'Alba is known for producing some of the most structured Barolo, the hot 2011 vintage resulted in many wines that will be approachable with minimal cellaring. Giovanni Manzone's estate-bottled 'Fraschin' is a prime example, already displaying tertiary aromas and flavors of black truffle and savory character that complement a core of ripe red berries, roses, licorice, black pepper, and earthy minerals. Between juicy acidity and supple tannins a long, fruit-filled finish unfolds on the palate. Now, for less than $20, you can drink a wine of kings and king of wines!
