2015 Monferrato Rosso

Tenuta La Pergola

2015 Monferrato <i>Rosso</i> Tenuta La Pergola - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
We are probably all familiar with what I’ll baptize the Weeknight Wine Conundrum: it’s been a long day, and we want nothing more than a glass or two of tasty red to wash down a quick and simple dinner—but naturally, we hesitate to open a whole bottle.
       Tenuta La Pergola’s Monferrato Rosso could be your savior when you are faced with this unfortunate dilemma. At a price that encourages weeknight consumption, this humble blend of Barbera, Dolcetto, Bonarda, and other grapes indigenous to Italy’s Piedmont offers juicy refreshment and versatility when you most need it. Saturated with berry fruit, floral aromatics, and earthy nuances, it will pair effortlessly with your laziest efforts in the kitchen and shines alongside take-out pizza. If you don’t finish the bottle, no worries—it can be kept for another two days or so without a problem (fridge recommended, then let it warm up to the desired temperature). And remember, there is nothing wrong with polishing off this Italian quaffer in one night! –Anthony Lynch

About Piedmont

Kermit’s love affair with the great reds of Piemonte dates back to the early days of his career: the very first container he imported from Italy, in fact, featured legendary 1971 and 1974 Barolos from Vietti and Aldo Conterno. Regular visits since then have seen our portfolio grow to now nine Piemontesi estates, with a strong focus on the rolling hills of the Langhe.

Nebbiolo rules these majestic, vine-covered marl slopes, giving Italy’s most mystifyingly complex, nuanced, and age-worthy reds. When crafted via traditional production methods—long macerations and extensive aging in enormous oak botti—the powerful, yet incredibly refined Barolos and Barbarescos provide haunting aromatics of tar, raspberry, incense, tea, roses, and more. At times austere in their youth but well worth the wait, they pair beautifully with the hearty local cuisine starring veal in many forms, braised beef, pastas like tajarin and agnolotti, and of course, Alba’s famous white truffles.

Surrounded by mountains on three sides, Piemonte’s climate is continental, with baking hot summers and cold winters. Nebbiolo is only part of the story here: juicy, fruity Barberas and Dolcettos represent the bread and butter throughout the region, and other native grapes like Freisa, Croatina, and the white Arneis are also noteworthy. Value abounds in the Monferrato, while Alto Piemonte also has its share of thrills to provide.

Every corner of Piemonte is rich with tradition, especially when wine is concerned. It’s no wonder we have been singing the region’s praises for over forty years.
