Garnacha (50%) and Tempranillo (50%)
Clean, bright purple-red colour. Lovely aromas of red and blackberries against a background of roasted notes, anise and cocoa. Very friendly and balanced in the palate, showing good structure and volume but fresh and lightly spicy as well. Smooth and delicious.
Organically Grown on a tiny plot of just four acres, and using Biodynamic principles, this Pinot Noir with a garnet/ruby hue is fresh yet smooth, and bursting with notes of cherry, strawberry, black fruits and vanilla. The mouth is round and full, showing aged refinement and a balanced combination of fruit flavours, complemented by delicate tannins that linger through the long finish. Barrel-aged for 12 months in French Oak.
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."
Beautiful red color. Intense nose of red fruits. Well-balanced on the palate with round and integrated tannins. Supple and easy-drinking wine. Best served with grilled meats, roasts, salads or soft cheeses.
