Cantamerli Monferrato Rosso 2011

Bordeaux meets the Piedmont! A blend of 60% Barbera and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, this dry red wine is soft, creamy, intense and uncommonly elegant. The grapes are grown on hills that date back to the Pleistocene. Ruby red in color, on the nose and palate, you will find this wine presents red fruits, spices and vanilla all perfectly, as the winery says, "harmonized."  To describe Cantamerli Rosso in a word would be "seemless." After spending 10 months in small French Oak Barrels, the wine is sent to us in Burgundian style bottles.

From German Website: wijnboutique: Thick, full black / red. Huge fragrant. Juicy cherries. Smoky cassis. Fresh mint. Earthy truffle tone. Tempting! Soft Creamy Vanilla, nice dose toasted and spicy wood. Smoothly switching to cedar and tobacco in polished completely ended toffee and espresso. Unbelievable GOOD.

So, this is a wine that we can recommend with a HIGH degree of confidence. Cantamerli Monferrato Rosso, with the grey suede like label and gold lettering, is also the perfect gift. $17.99 but many $$s more in appearance, taste and quality.
