Tasting Note:

Dark sweet, alluring fruit. Notably more seductive than usual but still offering plenty of that robust, mineral Monforte character. Open-knit brambly, earthy fruit with touches of cocoa and hints of stone. Generous, full and velvety with good fruit detail and focus. Remarkably fluid and inviting. Beautifully balanced. From South facing vines in the stellar Ginestra Cru of Monforte d’Alba situated at between 300-350 metres above sea level. The wine is aged in large, old 35hl French cask for 3 years followed by a further 6-12 months ageing in bottle.
