Tasting Notes

The 2008 Monvigliero has started to blossom over the course of the eighteen months between the time I first tasted it and the bottle I just tasted for this article. This is a great and utterly classic vintage of Monvigliero on the way, as the wine soars from the glass in a youthful and very complex constellation of strawberries, cherries, garrigue, incipient sous bois, gamebirds, fresh oregano, a touch of cedar, rose petals and a great base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and utterly classic in its structure (showing significantly more precision than the more generous 2009 version), with a rock solid core, suave tannins and a very, very long, focused and classy finish. A great vintage of Monvigliero in the making! Drink between 2020-2060
