Montepirolo 2016 is a lovely red wine blends produced in a Bordeauxesque style, this wine is made mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 10%Cabernet Franc, from biodynamic vineyards on the hills of Coriano in Emilia Romagna. One doesn’t often encounter a wine with such a flowery nose, with perfumes of lilac, lavender and wisteria. The fruity and spicy tones are perceptible only later with the dominance of eucalyptus, dried prunes, and pepper. The Cabernet Sauvignon is responsible for the powerful body with pronounced tannins, though nicely balanced by a juicy acidity. This wine is for people liking full-bodied wines, tending on the rustic side.
Montepirolo wine is the result of a well-balanced assemblage of the wine from three grape varieties vinified separately. After racking off, the wine is transferred to barrique where the assemblage takes place. Complete malolactic fermentation after skin-contact maceration at a controlled temperature for 3 weeks, the wine is aged in barrique for 24 months, and 18 months in the bottle. The palate is round and lovely, with a fantastic structure, smooth and velvety tannins, and a long delicious finish. Pair it with stewed meats and sauces, roasted lamb, and risotto.

Reviewer: Susana Lyon from Chicago, IL United States  
Powerful, well-rounded flavor. The palate reveals an excellent structure and a lengthy, vibrant finish with a perfect blend of acidity and tannins.
