Montevertine Rosso di Toscana 2006
Editorial Reviews for Montevertine Rosso di Toscana
Tight on the nose with some BBQ spice and oystershell minerality layered under perfumes of fennel seed and flowers. Much more open in the mouth than the nose would suggest with a hint of sweetness helping to frame transparent raspberry and strawberry fruit. This is classic mid-weight Sangiovese. A bit simple today but with lovely fruit the superb structural blanche that is the hallmark of the 2010 vintage. Elegant and pretty 91pts
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
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
Four and a half glasses
Definitely one of the better Chianti's i've had and will have to try again for a more accurate review. But the nose is of smooth black cherry with a body on the lighter-side-of-medium that is very easy and pleasing.

A lovely translucent garnet color, this shows beautiful aromatics from the start. A little closed at first, notes of cherry and cola emerge with air, along with sweet florals and a touch of orange zest. This sangiovese is surprisingly powerful and fu... Geoffrey Binder.

The 2009 Montevertine comes across as more classic than the Pergole Torte. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support expressive sweet red cherries, freshly cut flowers and mint. The 2009 is a highly attractive, pointed Montevertine that oozes class an... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2009 Montevertine 750ml
(a mainly sangiovese wine with small amounts of canaiolo nero and colorino; 13% alcohol) Bright red. Wonderfully floral, pure aromas of sour red cherry, cranberry and violet.

A wine that needs time to show what it has. Starts off slowly, then develops on the palate. Full and powerful. Like a top Brunello. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2015. Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte Vino da Tavola 750ml
Montevertine is situated in the heart of the Chianti district about halfway between Florence and Siena and lying specifically about 3 kilometers distance from the village of Radda in Chianti.
The 2007 Montevertine is a joyous wine. Medium in body yet irresistibly opulent, the 2007 Montevertine presents a rich fabric of red fruit framed by silky, impossibly fine tannins. Unlike the 2006 which was much firmer at this stage, the 2007 is ripe... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Montevertine 750ml
