Prunotto Monferrato Rosso Mompertone 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Monferrato Mompertone is 60% Barbera and 40% Syrah, a combination that as far as I know has not been tried elsewhere in Piedmont. I am not a huge fan of Piedmontese blends, but this wine just works, as it has in every vintage since it was first released in 2003. Dark cherries, tobacco, spices and earthiness are woven together nicely in this deep, immensely pleasing wine. The fruit retains gorgeous suppleness and refinement throughout. This is another strong showing from Prunotto. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017...92" WA 10/2012

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
