"...The 1997 Barolo Riserva Monfortino might be considered Giovanni Conterno's monument, the greatest ever made in a series which goes back all the way to the 1950s. Enormously full and ripe, layered and textured with a richness which is almost indescribable, it truly has it all, the rose petals, tar, and licorice of the nose, the succulent density of the flavors, the endless finish which rises to a crescendo of sensual authority. Strangely enough, it is already approachable, even if it will undoubtedly be good for another quarter of a century." (98pts WA)

「......一般人認為1997年的Barolo Riserva Monfortino是喬凡尼‧康諾特(Giovanni Conterno)不朽的作品,是自1950年代起一系列葡萄酒之中的極品。它非常飽滿成熟,層次與質感豐富,滋味難以形容,擁有所有佳釀的元素,包括玫瑰花瓣、焦油及甘草的芬芳,味道多汁濃厚,餘韻不息,並漸次增強,帶來感官的盛宴。奇怪的是,這支酒現在品嘗也相當合適,但無疑在其後廿多年,它會一樣出色。」(《葡萄酒倡導家》Robert Parker評分:98)
