Community Tasting Notes 7

    January 3, 2018 - The nose has some tar, compost, porcini and sweet earth. The palate starts off tasting like rum and raisin ice cream. With more air you get some florals and a suggestion of bitter chocolate. The wine's structural elements are muscular and it is a wine of good depth and presence, drinking really well now. The finish is all balsamic and salty black olive.

    May 17, 2015 - Inevitably, I was bound to run into some duds from the old Italian bottles I got from Chambers. This is one of them. Smells like red wine vinegar. I'm not tasting it.

    December 19, 2014 - Pretty, light, floral, overshadowed by the Marcarini but a classy older lady. B+/B

    June 14, 2014 - Monfortino 1971 Dinner: Chocolate, caramel and soy. Just barely holding on to life with plenty of caramel notes to it.

    November 4, 2011 - SOM'd overnight.

    Light to medium amber in color with clear rims. At first some soy and beef bouillon, but over time this bloomed into a supple round, very well balanced with excellent fruit, beautiful rose petals, secondary and less than you would think tertiary flavors. Still with some tannins, a beautiful texture, and overall a complete wine that was old but very enjoyable. A nice surprise. 92 pts
