    Winemaker's Notes:

    Prunotto Mompertone is deep ruby red in color with purple highlights. It has richly fruity aromas of plums and cherries with notes of violets, coffee, and spices. The palate is ample, dense, and full with soft tannins that are elegant and long. It is an excellent match with meat dishes, pot-au-feu, and fresh cheeses.

    Blend: 60% Barbera, 40% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Monferrato Mompertone is 60% Barbera and 40% Syrah, a combination that as far as I know has not been tried elsewhere in Piedmont. I am not a huge fan of Piedmontese blends, but this wine just works, as it has in every vintage since it was first released in 2003. Dark cherries, tobacco, spices and earthiness are woven together nicely in this deep, immensely pleasing wine. The fruit retains gorgeous suppleness and refinement throughout. This is another strong showing from Prunotto.

    A very enjoyable food red, especially at this price. Buy a half case and you'll wish you'd bought more.
