Monferrato, Piedmont


Bricco del Bosco Grignolino Monferrato Casalese 2018

A grape from Piemonte I didn’t know, apparantly lost but coming up again due to the younger generation winemakers. I’m in! Transparant in colour, gamay like taste and very light on it’s feet. But it’s a silent killer with it’s 14,5%. Very pleasant surprise! — 10 days ago

Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy

Monferrato Red Blend 2013

À l’image du 2012, dégusté il y a quelques mois, je trouve cette cuvée très austère, sérieuse. Le fruit est en retrait, c’est plus minéral et terreux, très tendu mais je perçois un potentiel que le vin pourrait s’ouvrir dans 2-3 ans. En carafe je voyais l’amélioration au fur et à mesure que le soirée avançait. — a month ago

Marchesi di Barolo

Maràia Barbera del Monferrato

Didn’t see any stellar or at least detailed reviews here. I have to say I really quite dig this. As always, need to consider whether it’s my state of mind. Med ruby. Subtle oak on the nose as well as fruit and just a pinch of something funky (really subtle and in a good way). Body is medium, balanced. Taste - strawberry but not in a jammy way. Got some anise I think for one sec but not on my last couple of sips. I know this is low tannin grape but nothing feels missing. Overall great and - not to be tacky - especially for the price. — 8 days ago

earlier vintages were always better - not feeling the 2019 as much. a little sweeter and less inky than earlier vintages? — 4 days ago

La Miraja

Ruche' di Castagnole Monferrato 2019

Its delicate, translucent hue recalls 'Holy Wine' taken during the Eucharist in a Cathedral: the blushed cheeks of a 12 year old taking his or her first sip. Like mineral water soaked in freshly picked roses, the nose transports you to an old castle, perhaps the very one where these very old vines grow. Hints of charred wood and ribbons of subtle spice seep through delicate floral aromas, like violet...a gorgeous, agile, lithe, lifted wine with sharp acidity on the front and smooth tannins towards the back. Recalls a Nebbiolo with a more rustic grip and only a brief fluttering of fruit, like wild raspberries and fresh cranberries lightly dusted in white pepper. I am beguiled! — a month ago

Albarola Barbera del Monferrato 2016

The nose is beautiful on this wine - perfumed blackberry, strawberry and plum. It has some noticeable sweet oak spice with a good whiff of vanilla. The palate brings flavors of red fruit with a slightly tart edge to it and a very good acidity that is lip-smacking. There is a savory undercurrent that I find irresistible. The finish lingers quite a while. — a month ago
