There is something magical happening at the Montalbera winery. The wines are getting amazing press at a value you cannot find anywhere else in the wine world!
We are offering this 98 point Barbera blend at a staggering $16.95 per bottle all day long, until we sell out.
Many factors go into wine scores; among them are price and approachability. We are not suggesting this 98 point Piedmont red stands up to some of the finest age-worthy Barolo in the world, but while those beauties are aging in your cellar, this ready-to-drink sub-$20 red blend is a must-have as your everyday sipper.
The Barbera provides a silky, lush fruit core and the Ruché grapes provide youthful Nebbiolo-like structure with rose petal, cedar and menthol aromatics. It is the perfect combination of fresh fruit and vibrant minerality.
The wine "explodes with a pure harmonious smell of fresh fruit, balsamic notes and lingering fruit" that offers an amazing "sensory pleasure of the flavor....among the best red wines in Italy, a fruit masterpiece...” Luca Maroni Annuario dei Miglori Vini Italiiani
The magical Montalbera terroir also gave rise to the winery's 2015 Laccento Ruche (arriving May), which received a stunning 99 points. Coincidnece? We don't think so. There is something special about this producer and terroir.
