Elegant and perfumed, dried red flowers, strawberries, hints of coffee grinds and herbs. Finishes long, lifted and fresh with very good complexity.

Cherries, mint. Light color. Fruit a tad tired. Full mouth. Bitter balance. Not quite clean. Tasting group 3rd, my 4th place. Blind

Amazing how different is than the 2005. Feels hotter and tastes hotter. The aromatics are more muted too.

A legend, a joy, complex old style with a very ready steady freshness that leaves your palate pure and happy.

The only other Monprivato I've had was Mauro's very first vintage - a 1970 I drank at a friend's house two years ago. Mauro and his daughter Elena told us that Mauro asked his father Giuseppe if he could make a wine from the Monprivato vineyard as an experiment; it has since become a classic
