We threw this in as a ringer in a tasting of older CA bdx blends and ring it did! Blind i thought this was old monte bello, glad i wasnt ridiculously off base. — 5 years ago

Cecilia Monte

Ca di Monti Langhe Nebbiolo 2018

Nose is elite out of the glass. Intense cherry bomb. Spice explosion. Monte deserves to be recognized among the elite producers of the Langhe.

Palate is amazing. Piercing cherry fruit. Amazing freshness.

Needs a 15 minute decant.

Bought from fass selections

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Adding chill now, notes forthcoming...
I'm not a CA Chardonnay guy, but this one has been very Burgundian in style previously.

Nose you had me at flinty mineral and grape seed.

Palate is a little too creamy oak, needs air.

Aired out palate has warm pear/pineapple and a mineral component I cannot quite pin yet, oak is still in the way.

48hr Update: Flinty/Oak bat to the palate, check ☑, has not mellowed at all tonight.

Thanks, it was an unexpected honor.

Monte del Frá

Cá del Magro Bianco di Custoza

Monte del Fra CA del Magro Bianco di Custoza is a single vineyard and offers many positive attributes: Still alive and kicking this 2013 vintage shows complex richness and weight in the palate but still manage to retain acidity and freshness. The elder flower and acacia notes are incredibly expressive. — 6 years ago

Monte Rio Cellars

Mendocino County Chardonnay 2020

Very reductive style, which I don’t hate. Struck matches for days. The fruit (apple, pear, lemon) is quiet and underripe, but the minerality is substantial. Not for everyone, and not something I’m dying to revisit soon, but this is a unique CA chard with personality to be sure. Atypical. — 10 months ago
