Editorial Reviews for Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato
Mean and austere on the nose with some raw oak, mint and light meaty notes. On the palate, this was a touch soft and chewy with some mineral earth notes and herbal nuances. Not much is going on here, though the finish does show some lingering bitter tannins. 85 pts
Shy and a bit spicy on the nose. Slow to emerge smoke, earth and rhubarb notes lend this a less ripe and slight chunky tone. Soft and bright in the mouth, this is rather lacy and pure with red berry fruit. It is a bit on the simple side, but as balanced and fresh as this is, it is attractive. 88 pts
This opens sappy and sweet with oak to the fore and a background of licorice spice. There is a deep, roast meat, veal reduction edge to the fruit and high tones of cola and floral tones. In the mouth this is bright with a bit of an extracted feel. Simple cherry and cranberry fruit is presented in a modernish package of clumsy tannins and elevated alcohol that yields an inelegant whole though the finish does offer a pleasant medicinal note. 86pts
Sweet and sappy on the nose with very spicy fruit. Still a bit rigid in the mouth with good acids and just a touch of tannin sticking out. Still youthful but not particularly exciting. 87pts
Nice bottle sweetness and limestone minerality here with a gamy, smoky edge to the fading fruit. Very friendly in the mouth with nice freshness and fine balance. Gently sweet and still surprisingly vibrant. A pleasant surprise 88pts
Four and a half glasses
Tastes of honey, butter, very sweet on the pallet. Delicious wine!
09 CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET CLOS DU CHATEAU, 1ER CRU Chateau de la Maltroye , White Wine, 750ml Always a winner, this shows a purity and vibrance unusual for the vintage. A mingling of peaches and fresh citrus, laced with white flowers and flowing minerality. Stylishly serious - and most seriously delicious! https://www.burgundywinecompany.com/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=57&zenid=q3r430tvq2fbqtknceetrrpnn3
SG$50 in Singapore. One of the biggest rip off I ever had.
Rich bubblegum fruit, sweet cinnamon and plum. Some nice cherry cola fruit on the palate but overall seemed lacking in acid balance and a bit flabby.
Fresh and juicy. Very nice! - WS Grand Tour 2011
External Reviews for Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato
Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone own and manage this small family estate in the Piedmont. Having already discovered their extremely good, value-priced Barolo, we had to try their Pinot Noir when we heard about it. And we were very impressed. Not just because it is a textbook example of beautifully balanced, cool-climate grown Pinot Noir, but because the price was unheard of for a wine of this quality. Piedmont is a very similar micro-climate to Burgundy and this Pinot shows classic characteristics of black cherry and strawberry fruit with bright acidity, earthy nuances and lively tannins. It's aged six months in oak barrels and shows a marked complexity. This is one you've got to try!
(racked in October and just blended in stainless steel tank): Good deep red with ruby tones. Cool aromas of blackberry, blueberry, black tea and licorice. Surprisingly ripe and sweet in the mouth, but with excellent sappy verve to the deep black c... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Medium red. Complex aromas of redcurrant raspberry leather truffle and smoky earth. Rich chewy and deep with captivating sweetness to the red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with a kick of acidity a saline nuance and noteworthy rising length. With extended time in the recorked bottle this Volnay gained markedly in dusty spice character. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
By contrast to the Genevrières, the 2010 Perrières is a knockout with its superbly elegant nose that offers the hallmark mineral reduction and pure floral and white-fleshed fruit aromas that are very much in keeping with the refined flavors that seem...

Dark and smoky sporting black cherry plum and spice flavors. The tannins are dense and burly leaving grip and spicy notes on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.- B.S. Wine Spectator.
At present ...there are notes of reduction yet the nose seems fresh and ripe anyway. The cool, restrained and mineral-driven flavors possess good volume before terminating in a linear and persistent finish... Burghound.
