Madness you say to drink a 2013 Alessandria Monvigliero so young. Decant got it in good shape & grilled pork shoulder really brought it home. Beautiful bottle of wine on Saturday night in the big town.

Five hours in the decanter to “break on through”. Plenty of acid, tannins—crystal ball says long life ahead of these. Good fruit, eucalyptus notes, slate, cedar. Tannic finish with a hint of heat. Lovely, but definitely resist the urge for another ten years. Enjoyed as birthday wine with chicken liver ragù.

Not quite the level of Burlotto but a delicious Monvigliero that was elegant & floral showing tart cherry, strawberry, mineral, dried herb spices & rose petal.

Elegant, floral style & like most 13’s this still needs more time.

Not quite the complexity & aromatics of Burlotto’s Monvigliero but made in an elegant & feminine style. This had tart red cherry, strawberry, cranberry fruits, rose petal, spice & tar. Will need more time.

Maybe I shouldn’t have had it after Burlotto. Stylistically, way different. Good wine.
