Notes from the Winemaker:
Monsordo is both the name of the historical farmhouse that hosts the Ceretto winery in Alba, as well as the hill where many of its vineyards lie. This Ceretto offering is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. All three varietals are vinified and aged separately in wooden barrels for 18 months after which they are blended to make this elegant, ageworthy wine.
Deep ruby red in color with garnet highlights, this red blend has aromas of dark berry fruits and black plums complemented by undertones of sweet spices and vanilla. On the palate, the structure is enhanced by finely-grained tannins to make an rich, full-bodied wine.
Food Pairing: Pair this wine with stuffed red meat dishes like flank steak roulade or farsumagru.

"Rich and supple, this red delivers black currant, cherry, cedar, olive and iron aromas and flavors. Both fruity and savory, with a firm underlying structure. Drink now through 2020. 3,200 cases made." â€“ BS (Apr 30, 2015)
