Perfumed and very bright with dried flowers, dark berries and a sandalwood undertone. Full body, integrated tannins and a soft and polished finish. Very pretty and structured. Harmonious. Measured. Drink in 2023 or later.

The wine shows the forward momentum and power of the vintage, imparting ripe and rich primary intensity along the way. This steady and elegant expression of Nebbiolo reveals dried blackberry, tar, licorice, smoke and white truffle. The wine's approach is broad and textured as it rolls over the palate. Some 6,000 bottles were produced.- ML

The tannins are gruff, though overall the balance leans to the dry side. Delivers fine length, with a graphite note emerging on the mouthwatering aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2047. — B.S.

Light in both color and body, the 2015 is pretty, but not especially typical nor expressive of this Monforte site. Sweet dried cherry, crushed flowers, cedar, licorice and white pepper add bright aromatic top notes. In 2015, vintage dominates over site character. -- Antonio Galloni
