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

Very balsamic on the nose and very fresh with grassy notes, a bit of terpene, and emerging floral tones. In the mouth this is very young and disjointed with edgy acids and a bit of heat on the finish. The midpalate shows some nice cherry fruit but this comes off as short, simple and lean tonight. This needs time to come together. Judgment reserved

Deep and earthy on the nose with tremendous floral tones and smoky, slightly spicy tones of dried berries. This is a mouth filling wine with slightly astringent tannins that add nice grab in the mouth. Floral and dark up front with notes of hibiscus, earth, and bitter cherry on the mid-palate that lead to a long strawberry toned finish. This is a bit hard, and tightens up with air, but it exhibits all the raw materials needed to improve in the cellar. 89pts

This is Montevertine's ultimate achievement. The estate parted ways with the Chianti DOCG in order to be able to make 100% Sangiovese, and here is the much-celebrated result. Aged for at least two years in barrel, the wine has the intensity of a classic Super Tuscan with a lighter feel on the palate and more finesse and elegance.

For pure and unparalleled expression of the Sangiovese grape, look no further than Montevertine, an estate that gives new meaning to the word "Supertuscan." Aged 2 years in large barrels, this cuvée is almost all Sangiovese with a miniscule addition of Colorino. Concentrated and brooding in its youth, the wine will unfold spectacularly over time.
