Note: THIS NEEDS AN HOUR DECANT.
Nose is deep - smells more like high end burgundy. Dark but bright cherries and also that depth you get from expensive burgundy. Deep dense perfume. Cherry flower perfume. Insane. There’s is Nebbiolo spice but is integrated so hard to differentiate from burgundy.
This gets a holy shit!
Palate is intense middle of season cherry fruit. Almost cherry liquor. Some sour cherry. It has that high end combination of dense and intense but acidically balanced fruit. If she had harvested this a day later it would have been too much but as it is it’s perfect. Utterly psychotic. Maximally Delicious.
Finish is so bright it almost lights the palate on fire. Perfect lingering cherry extract. That kiss of perfect but not over the top cherry extract takes this over the 9.5 line for me.
Amazing she got such a great wine in a difficult vintage.

@delectable Cecilia monte Langhe nebbiolo “ca di monti”
Let sit for 45-60 minutes.
Nose is elegant cherry and cherry pit. Almost a touch of lipstick. As it opens (30 minutes) massive gorgeous cherry flowers. You get the sense of her style. So elegant. Nose is more a 9.4.
Palate is perfect cherry. Cherry flower internal aromatics. As it opens so sleek and delicious. Wow. Amazing purity especially for a langhe Nebbiolo. After 45 minutes great texture. A hint of gorgeous sweetness.
You can tell from this that monti is in the top tier of Langhe producers. Her wines are more about the aromatic soul of Nebbiolo than gobs of fruit.
