96 Points, Tip Top Tipple, Gary Walsh – “it’s a bit locked in and compressed initially, but give it some air and it roars out of the glass. Dark cherry, liquorice root, spice and perfume, a ‘mineral’ crushed rock kind of thing happening. Sweep of pumice stone tannin, freshness and cool minty acidity, and a long sweetly tannic finish. Terrific release here. Will age magnificently.” Drink 2023-2036

 An absolutely stellar release this from the great ‘grand cru’ of Verduno - Monvigliero.  In fact the best yet in our opinion and surpassing the very beautiful 1996 we recently drank from magnum.  

Sourced from holdings in Monvigliero with an average vine age in excess 50 years. 

Pure crunchy red fruits punctuated by subtle and delicate spice so synonymous with this cru.  The dense core of fruit unfurls with air to give way to a particularly elegant iteration of this wine.  A wine of power which is still light on its feet. Ultra fine minerally tannins carry through from the wine’s impeccable length. A wine of immense power without weight.
