Community Tasting Note

    September 19, 2021 - On the list at Sweet Basil whose wine service is always top notch. This was my first Acclivi and I found it to be quite a bit brawnier than the Monviglieros I've had. it could have just been the vintage though as I haven't had '15 Monvig yet. It still has the hallmark Burlotto whole cluster strawberry fruit nose with some earthy undertones. On the palate it was unfortunately fairly shut down and unyielding. Big tannic bright cherry fruit that didn't expand much over dinner. We followed it up with an '18 Pegau that was incredibly complex and open for business by comparison. I don't think I'll go for another Acclivi young after this experience. I have high hopes for this wine but, unlike Monvig, it clearly shuts down.
