In 1983, having made several great Barolos from Monprivato, Mauro began replanting a two-acre section of the vineyard, using a Nebbiolo clone originally planted in Monprivato in 1921 by his grandfather Morissio. Mauro theorized that this clone-of the Michét subvariety had become uniquely adapted to the Monprivato terroir. Mauro's goal was to produce a super-riserva Barolo called Cà d'Morissio.

Wine SpectatorThis red is still in its shell for now, only hinting at its full potential. Reserved aromas of flowers, strawberry and cherry are augmented by menthol, tobacco, spice and mineral flavors as this unfolds on the palate. The tannins keep a firm grip on the finish, but this shows elegance and delicacy overall. Just needs time. Best from 2016 through 2036.
