A superb single-vineyard Ciró Rosso made from 100% Gaglioppo grown in sandy clay soils, fermented in stainless steel and aged in concrete for a year. It has an enticing nose of red fruits, orange peel, scrub-brush, baking spices, and a deeper, cherry kirsch sweetness.
50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Cinsault
A deep ruby red. The nose dances with aromas of black cherries and blackberries, while the alluring palate sings with complex notes of balsam, spices, and wild blackberries. Suggestions of cocoa and mocha anchor the perfectly-balanced ending.
Beautiful red color. Intense nose of cherry and blackcurrant. Fruit-driven mouthfeel displaying the rich aromas perceived on the nose. Long and elegant finish. Great with roasts, white meats, mixed salads, soft cheeses.
The Nebbiolo that comes off this property is some of the best in La Morra. Even in challenging vintages the Monfalletto terroir yields Nebbiolo that is both powerful and supple. Insiders know that this is one of the best terroirs in Barolo.
95 Points, Robert Parker: "The house style prizes muscle and brawn in this vintage that lends itself handily to these qualities. Pressed cherry and blackberry cede to licorice, cured tobacco and iron ore."
94 Points, Wine Spectator: "A plump, cherry-, raspberry- and tar-flavored red, showing accents of mineral, tobacco and eucalyptus, with a swath of solid tannins guarding the finish. Balanced and long, this should come around soon."
94 Points, James Suckling: "Attractive aromas of black cherry with strawberry and hints of vanilla and cedar. Some sandalwood. Medium body. Ultra-fine tannins integrate beautifully into the wine. Plenty of fruit flavors and length. Juicy."
Syrah 40 %, Grenache 30 %, Carignan 30%
Lovely deep red colour, dark even. Black fruit nose, almost all black fruits: cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, cooked blueberry and damsons. Toasted spelt loaf aromas, Havana cigar and cocoa beans (crushed naturally). Full-bodied mouth-feel, firm and already nicely integrated despite the powerful tannins. Serve with risotto with porcini mushrooms.
