Azienda Agricola Montevertine Il Sodaccio 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

After a manual harvest, the wines are fermented in large (150hl) cement cuves for at least 25 days. The malolactic fermentation also occurs in large volume in cement cuves before it is racked into both small (Alliers oak) and large (Slavonian oak) barrels for 18 to 24 months, depending on the cuvée. The wine is never pumped, all movement of the wine is by gravity, and the wines are bottled without filtration and then held in bottle for at least 4 months prior to first release.

MONTEVERTINE lies within the heart of the Chianti hills, in the community of Radda at an altitude of 425 m above sea level. Documents show that the site has been dwelled since the 11th century. Traces of the original construction, which undoubtedly was of defensive nature and which later on had been converted to a rural housing, are still preserved. Our wine-making procedure is extremely traditional and it has been never been varied since the very first vintage. The grapes are harvested by hand and then fermented in glazed cement vats, without temperature control, and the must is topped up twice daily in order to keep the top marc moist and to obtain a slow extraction of the tannins from the skins. After the racking off, the malolactic fermentation is also carried out using cement vats. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, our wines are stored in wooden barrels over a period of approximately two years.The wines will never be filtered and the topping-up method, without any pumps, is used for the bottling. For the ageing of our wines we use oak barrels from Slavonia with a 5.5 to 18 hectolitre capacity and 225 litre Allier casks. Read less

Deep and dark on the nose with big black cherry fruit accented by precise mineral tones, spicy anise seed and green herbal notes and top notes of smoldering soil. On the palate this is surprisingly bright and juicy with huge, ripe tannins and excellent, deep dark cherry fruit edged with slightly medicinal and floral notes. The finish shows a nice leather edge and adds interesting suggestions of dried fruit but this never looses freshness. 92pts
