    August 7, 2020 - Dusty tannins - mostly resolved. Still has plenty of fruit. Not too challenging a wine - enjoyed by all

    October 12, 2019 - Drunk over dinner with friends, no TN, from memory.
    Elegant, floral, red-fruited nose, with just the beginning of evolution. Beguiling.
    On the palate it is assertive but light-footed, with still firm, but not overpowering tannins. With food it was perfect.

    August 9, 2018 - 14% alcohol. Tasted blind.

    Consistent with my previous tasting notes. Very ripe, concentrated and robust Nebbiolo; very powerful and brooding in style, more reminiscent of Barolo than Barbaresco. Overall very tightly-structured and astringent with a lot of unresolved tannins. Feels like it could use a decade or more before really starting to open up. The warm vintage shows - to the extent I first guessed 2009 Barbaresco Santo Stefano. I got it almost this time - the vintage was off by a year and this was "Monte" instead of "Santo"! Oh well. A great wine anyway. Perhaps a bit too close for overripeness for comfort, but still staying within the borders.

    April 20, 2018 - medium to dark ruby color. opens with a nose of rose, tar, cherry liquor and mint but changes to more of a balsamic nature as the wine opens up. nose reminds me more of a barolo. this is a darker brooding wine as far as barbaresco's go. on the palate, I get cherry and an underlying earthiness that seems to pervade this wine. The Serafino family only makes wine from this one prestigious vineyard so you might expect it to be quite good and it doesn't dissapoint. an hour an a half into the wine and it is drinking fabulously. secondary flavor characteristics have just started to develop in this wine so perhaps the next bottle won't be opened for another 5 to 7 years. This is a wine that is made in the old style. no barrique here and therefore no hint of oak, just the varietal beauty of nebbiolo.
