Winemaker Notes

Mompertone is produced with 60% Barbera grapes and 40% Syrah grapes, originating from an enchanting vineyard in Calliano, which is 300 meters above sea level.

Critical Acclaim

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Medium-deep ruby. Aromas of spicy black pepper and grilled meat complement smoky black plum. A broad, spicy, low-acid wine with impressive density to its tar, smoked meat and black fruit flavors. The meaty, peppery finish speaks more of the syrah than the barbera in this vintage.

The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Monferrato Mompertone (60% Barbera, 40% Syrah) is a juicy, rewarding wine. Still rather backward, this richly-textured offering is packed with jammy dark fruits, herbs, tar, smoke and minerals. With another few months in bottle, the Mompertone should be terrific. This French oak-aged blend of Barbera and Syrah is in just its third vintage, but the combination undoubtedly works very nicely here. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017.
