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.
"Prunotto's Monferrato Mompertone, an unusual Barbera/Syrah blend, has been terrific since its first vintage, and the 2011 is no exception. Dark red and black fruit, smoke, tobacco, tar and lavender meld together in an imposing yet impeccably balanced, harmonious wine loaded with personality. Today the 2011 is still quite primary, but it will develop further complexity with time in the bottle. Best of all, the 2011 is a fabulous value."
