Mompertone is produced with 60% Barbera grapes and 40% Syrah grapes, originating from an enchanting vineyard in Calliano, which is 300 meters above sea level. This property overlooks the gentle hills surrounding Basso Monferrato.
The wine is aged partly in barrels and partly in barriques for about 10 months, and is then aged for another 6 months in the bottle.
Mompertone has a ruby red color with violet reflections and has a bouquet rich in fruit, especially plum and cherry, with aromas of spices and coffee. On the palate the wine is very smooth, and rich in soft, elegant, and persistent tannins.
"The 2007 Monferrato Mompertone (60% Barbera, 40% Syrah) is a juicy, rewarding wine. Still rather backward, this richly-textured offering is packed with jammy dark fruits, herbs, tar, smoke and minerals. With another few months in bottle, the Mompertone should be terrific. This French oak-aged blend of Barbera and Syrah is in just its third vintage, but the combination undoubtedly works very nicely here. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017."
The Wine Advocate
"Medium-deep ruby. Aromas of spicy black pepper and grilled meat complement smoky black plum. A broad, spicy, low-acid wine with impressive density to its tar, smoked meat and black fruit flavors. The meaty, peppery finish speaks more of the syrah than the barbera in this vintage."
