The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a slightly tannic attack and however balanced by alcohol, good body, intense flavors, pleasing roundness. The finish is persistent with flavors of cherry, plum and raspberry. Monferrato Rosso Alfero ages for 14 months in barrique followed by 6 months of aging in bottle.

Questo vino ha avuto anzitutto il merito di farmi diventare un amante del Pinot Nero : nei miei precedenti incontri non avevo avuto fortuna e trovato bottiglie mediocri.
Ora ho affinato le mie armi e le mie conoscenze e sono spesso a caccia di Pinot Nero di valore.
Questo Monferrato Rosso Alfero 2004, che mi ha sorpreso felicemente ed emozionato, è un ottimo vino, a mio parere un Pinot Nero che ben si può ritenere tra i migliori della produzione nazionale, superiore a molte ben più costose bottiglie.
La ricchezza del suo aroma si accompagna a una struttura corposa, a un sapore intenso, equilibrato e armonioso, con finale notevole e suadente piacevolezza.
Consultando le varie guide mi ha sorpreso che appaia molto poco una sua adeguata valutazione. Apprezzo pertanto il vostro punteggio di quattro diamanti.
