  • A second time with this wine and now in a transition phase. Give this 3-5 years and let it settle down a little bit.
    Previously 96 pts.

  • Getting the Band Back Together (Ciao Bella, Mpls): Very pretty medium translucent maroonish red color. Same bottle as Chablis28; decanted 4 hours; drank a glass plus over an hour plus. This had an absolutely killer nose. Dried cedarbox, savory herbs, bright roses, balsamic strawberries, red fruits, sweet cigar, cinnamon, airy spicebox, tobacco leaf, wow, wow, wow. The palate shows cherry, dried wood, balsamic strawberries, dried fruits, with some darker fruit, cigar and polished fine grained tannins that are rather approachable for the youth. Great stuff, hope to have this again in a few more years. Thanks to Craig for this one. 95-96pts with some upside if the palate catches the nose.

  • Opened and decanted 4 hours prior to leaving for Ciao Bella tonight. Back in the btl just prior to leaving. Removed cork again at venue just before drinking to keep it cool while seated on Ciao Bella's outstanding shaded garden patio. Semi translucent bright red without any telltale Nebbiolo bricking yet. Right now, this is most striking for 3 things; a profound perfume and its weightless purity & intensity. The fruit is vineyard fresh like it was picked today. The aromatics are amazing, even sitting outside. I love the youthfully vibrant wild berry supported by minerality, spice, herbs and other more subtle harmonics. The nose is packed with rose petal, berries and pungent overtones. This is a highly refined wine perhaps only toped by the best examples from G Rinaldi. Tons of upside but super intriguing right now too with lots of air. The tannins were much more pronounced on opening. Sadly, this cuvee has lost nearly any semblance of value and I had to stop buying it with this vintage. Paid $58. The very next vintage I was offered from my same store was around $150. Which made buying it a maybe at best.

  • Gorgeous, perfumed nose is classic Monvigliero but ratcheted up to eleven, with wild strawberry, rose, black olive, and stemmy spice. Soft, regal tannins and soaring, ripe acidity frame large-scale strawberry and earth flavors. Such elegance. Likely entering its shutdown phase so if you haven't enjoyed a bottle yet ... see you in a decade.

  • Dinner with Roger and Vivian (SF): Olive tapenade on the nose, red cherry, roses; palate is light bodied, approachable tannins, red cherry, fruit persists through the midpalate; finish is medium length and a bit shorter than I expected. A very nice elegant wine, classically made, but doesn’t strike me with its intensity as much as its balance. 92
