Monte Bello Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Took me a while to decide if I liked this or not. Still not sure really. At times this feels like a great California expression of good white burgundy - puligny perhaps - from a producer we obviously respect. But at other times the buttery lanolin notes are too much for me, and overall the acid was one notch less than I was hoping. Still a nice wine. — 23 days ago

Monte Grande Soave Classico Garganega 2020

Good straightforward Soave. Nothing remarkable but it hits all the correct Soave notes. Good with cheese tortellini pasta. — 11 days ago

Monte Sant'Urbano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2017

John W

Dark ruby brown coloration. On the nose, cherry, raisin, vanilla, minerals and oak. On the palate, cherry, vanilla, raisin, oak, chocolate and a long finish of same. Full body with nice tannins. Very good, representative amarone - at $60 at B-21 not a bad value. — 17 days ago

Monte Real Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 1976

Super cool. Never had an older Rioja. The body was so light it reminded me of a nice burg. Never knew these could age and be so graceful. Definitely WOTD. — a month ago

Herdade do Esporão

Monte Velho Alentejano Antão Vaz Blend 2021

McCarthy & Schiering, $11

Bursting with tropical flavors, lots of pineapple and guava, almost reminds me of POG juice. Balanced with a crisp acidity and very easy to drink. Amazing for the price, I immediately went back and grabbed 2 more bottles

Bocca Di Lupo Castel del Monte Aglianico 2014

Lots of girth left in this bottle, but a 30 minute decant was all that was necessary to compliment a hearty lasagna, side of hot Italian sausage and arugula salad! — a month ago
