Tasting notes

2011 was a hot year that gave good-structured grapes all throughout the zone of Barolo. Monforte once again displays wines with great body and full of tannins, a distinguishing characteristic year after year. On the nose, Pressenda 2011 has clean aromas of red fruit not quite open, while in the mouth its powerful taste would do well with equally powerful dishes
