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

Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Rather evolved on the nose but giving up it’s all this evening with a fine array of dried spices, earth, sour meat, sour wild berry, and cake batter tones. A hint of VA gives this a nice bit of lift and adds to the leathery, gamy suggestions on the nose. In the mouth this is velvety and rich with a green tone to strawberry and wild raspberry fruit. On the mid-palate there is a fine, refreshing, candied watermelon rind note that leads to a vibrant finish that is driven by the great acids of this wine. The finish really gains length with air and shows wonderful spice tones and red currant fruit, which remains taut and focused. A wine that is at peak, or perhaps just past peak but really very fine. 92pts
