    February 9, 2020 - Incredible concentration, ripe forward red fruit, noticeable but fine tannins. A lot of Monfortino iron. Though incredibly youthful, generous fruit makes it really enjoyable. A long life ahead. I guess Robert knows what he is doing.

    February 8, 2020 - Acker Merrall Bicentennial Gala (Cipriani Wall Street): Small glass, brief note. Lots here but an odd combination of brooding fruit and earth character. I liked this, but wasn't wow'ed and left scratching my head, asking myself if it is getting tired or still too young.

    October 28, 2019 - Huge, huge nose of red cherry, rubber, and smoke, totally dissimilar from the other vintages. Slightly vegetal palate. Frankly I don't care much for this and if this bottle is representative, you can expect a really big wine but not a typical Monfortino. Sort of Roty-meets-Piedmont.

    September 28, 2019 - Lovely nose. Dusty and elegant, lingering finish. Like the note below suggested, it did seem to shut down a bit — or, more than expected — after a short time in the decanter. But then it was gone within 90 minutes, so there was no opportunity to see if it blossomed further. Lovely while it lasted.
