Whew came swimmin’ out this bouquet cause it is rich and enriching, cedar, clove, baking spices, forest floor, the spice of fresh velvet.
Only 16 cases were made and the little wine shop on Jones Street, Jones Street Wine, was nice enough to let me get my hands on one of their last bottles (1 of 5).

Mouthwateringly good. Nice balance of spice and acid to wake up the buds. Little to no bitterness. Punchy fruit punches through. And that wonderful clove essence throughout.
Few wines make me write longer notes, but when I find one that does, I can’t seem to stop talking about them.
Aight time to drink it though… — 4 days ago
Lovely bouquet of lemon zest and orange blossom with hints of cedar, creek pebbles, and white pepper. On the palate lemon candy, white peach, and grapefruit pith with fresh ginger and white pepper spice lingering on a medium length finish. Zippy, fun, approachable white wine with a bit of zing. Great value from southern Italy. Went perfect with my pineapple jackfruit Buddha bowl with teriyaki sauce. — 15 days ago
03 was historically hot & dry. Did Monprivato succeed despite these conditions?
Served the wine with the Vinloq System which allows nitrogen to be pulled into the bottle with pouring
👀Brown/orange mixed with red
👃Cherries, tobacco, tar & roses. Some stewed/dried fruit
👅Mature. Florals and fruit are present. Light. Could use more acid. Easy to drink. Balanced
Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my fridge
Nice aged notes. Savory. Okay precision. Tannins are good. Kept improving in the glass
👃Classic & beautiful with aged notes. Finally what I was hoping for👍
👅Drinking well. Cherry. Significant tar. Savory
Similar on the 3 days, but the nose was most beautiful on DAY 17
The pedigree was apparent here in this lovely barolo despite the vintage conditions. Balance was retained with enough precision to allow the Mascarello Monprivato personality to come through👏 — 7 days ago
Floral, lychee, stone fruit but dry and delicate. No haze or sediment. Really amazing orange wine. One of my trend faves. — 2 days ago
I get this typical aged chardonnay scent on the nose (which it is not obviously), combined with the horse stable smell at my parents 😛
Turbent deep yellow. Very round on the palate, no sharp edges and low acidity. Can use some additional cellar time to gain more complexity — 16 days ago
Burlotto’s Monvigliero is one of my favorite wines in the world 🌎
Served with the Vinloq System
👃Needs an hour in the glass and 65F/18C. Underripe strawberry, eucalyptus, herbs, & roses. The olive tapenade arrives last. Can a wine smell silky?(synesthesia?)
👅Red cherry fruit, herbs, olives, tar & florals. Velour texture. Tar and cherries linger on the long and lovely finish. Elegant & refined
Slow Decanted the remaining wine in my fridge
👃More fruit than before? Smells totally amazing!
👅The elegant side of Barolo. Total class. Please don’t let this glass empty🙏🏼
The wine was stellar on each occasion 🍷
