Palate some va. Rich cherry. Chocolate. Good grip. — 8 days ago
Incredible stuff, purchased this from winery, always enjoyed their Zin and they have some compelling single vineyard offerings: this is from their oldest vineyard planted in 1880s: inky deep dark completely opaque, looks like current vintage, after several hours it pried loose gorgeous blue & black fruit, vanilla, beef jerky, hoisin sauce, forest, white pepper, smoke, dried herbs… just unbelievable depth & complexity. Huge on palate, muscular firm grippy tannins, so much blue & black berry fruit, liqueur-like, great earthy peppery elements alongside fruit. Smooth rich lingering finish. Forgot how much we paid, but this over delivered and has a LONG life ahead. — 18 days ago
The 2019 Soave Classico Monte Carbonare pulls you close with a nuanced mix of spring flowers, ginger and crushed green apple. It soothes the palate through silky textures and a pleasant inner sweetness, with ripe pit fruits and hints of melon motivated by brisk acidity. Nothing is out of place in this elegant and jovial Soave, as it tapers off lightly structured and buzzes with residual tension. While highly enjoyable today, the Monte Carbonare will excel through medium-term cellaring. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

A bit young but surprisingly complex. Earthy, no too much on tannins, and hints of berries and apples toward the finish. — 8 days ago
