July 9, 2019 - Lots of mokka, cumin, cinnamon and coriander. Typical structure
July 7, 2019 - Orange peel, forest, wood, cinamon, cumin, coriander, coffee, burned impression, smoke and a long acidity.
September 22, 2018 - Boy, was this a hit with everyone. FANTASTIC right now, easily drinking better than at any time we have ever had it thus far.
December 7, 2017 - Monthly tasting club LTC; No real theme, Fully blind challenge. (By me @ LWH): In the bouquet earth, autumn forest, cherries, tobacco and leather. On the palate the same impressions, good acidity and length. In fact a pity this was my last bottle. A great pleasure now and probably for the next 5 years.
January 30, 2017 - Quick note from memory. Classic Monforte character. Black cherry, hints of tar and violets. Big and punchy, somewhat chewy tannins. Quite enjoyable now but patience is really what it calls for. At least 4-5 years in my book. 90p
August 4, 2016 - heel erg gelijklopend met vorige notitie. Wel alles opgedronken op dag 1. Sterk verbeterend naarmate avond vorderde, dus best een uurtje van tevoren in karaf doen.
November 9, 2015 - Classic nose of black cherry, tar and violets. Palate reflects nose. Just picking up tertiary flavors with age. Tannins softening and pleasantly chewy. Better on day two, but just a bit. Very nice Barolo gettin' in it's groove.
September 13, 2015 - A very pleasing Barolo. Easy to drink. Great taste.
August 28, 2015 - A very nice wine for the money.
June 25, 2015 - This wine has developed even further. So smooth and easy to drink. Very pleasant taste and well developed fruits and tannins. A great value for the money I think ($49).
