Montes Alpha Special Cuvee Pinot Noir 2020 750ml
93 - James Suckling
Tasting Notes: The wine shows characteristic ruby-red colour, deep and clean. Its aromas are unveiled little by little, revealing the variety’s fruit character, marked by red and dark berries, such as blackberry, sour cherry, black plum, and ripe grapes. There are also bakery notes, such as nutmeg and vanilla, and a faint toasted tone from the French oak barrels. It feels medium bodied on the palate, with very good acidity, which strongly reinforces the feeling of fresh fruit. In short, it is an elegant wine with a lot of character.
