Monte Bello Chardonnay 2014

Hmm. Lots of oak, buttery, lots of vanilla, moderate volume and a sweetness on the finish. Sub acid.

Starting to get going a week in… definitely gaining volume and complexity.

@Ron R had to snatch this when I found it in a local shop for less than $100, but I actually much prefer the recent vintages of the estate chardonnay.

You’re a lucky many, @Josh Morgenthau. This is a wine that’s akin to rocking horse shit!

Monte Rosso Zinfandel 2011

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

Monte Carbonare Soave Classico Garganega 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

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)

Absolutely pristine fruit on nose. So elegant, silky, energetic, wonderful cherry, strawberry and dried herbs on the palate. Really pretty sweetness.

This outshone the D’Angerville Champans when tried side by side. Stunning find

Nice wine. Definitely a clear cut above your “typical” soave. Would be nice to try with some age. — 21 days ago

Colheita Seleccionada Alentejano Red Blend 2019

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