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

Big, intense aromatic that lack some freshness are decidedly in the earthy, leather end of the spectrum with nice mineral tones and a toasty edge to the dark but somewhat anonymous fruit. Big and soft in the mouth with good acids that highlight the core of very ripe, dark, earthy dried fruit tones. The tannins appear on the backend and lead into the finish, which shows nice, astringent cherry pit tones. This is a fine wine but it lacks the clarity and definition of the best vintages. 89pts
