Monte Degli Angeli Piemonte Pinot Noir, 2013
The label tells me this is Pinot Noir, but the smells and flavors say Piemonte. Dark cherries, rose petals and smoke--has many of the qualities of a good Nebbiolo or Barbera wine. The longer it sits in the glass and is exposed to air, the better it gets. Again, Piemonte. Lots of black pepper and grip on the finish. This is what I expect from a top Cotes du Rhone. And at $10.99, it's $5.00 cheaper than the less impressive Cotes du Rhone below. I like this wine.
