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.

  • Azienda Agricola Montevertine Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Riserva 1988

    Snoothrank:

    Light and tight on the nose with subtle perfumed notes of fresh flowers, raw beef, lemon verbena, smoke, and salty, sandy notes emerging slowly in the glass. On the palate this is wonderfully precise with superb, ripe tannins framing the spicy red currant fruit. On the backend this gains weight and reveals wonderful minerality that offers contra...

  • Azienda Agricola Montevertine Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Riserva 1990

    Snoothrank:

    This offers up a huge, evolved bouquets of tobacco, motor oil, butchers wax, dried basil stems, and mineral tones over a bed of jammy strawberry fruit. In the mouth this is rich and plush with a really excellent feel, wonderfully integrated and rich, red fruit that saturates the palate and leads to a tea tinged finish. I would have liked to have...

  • Monte Vertine Annata Toskana Montevertine Rot 2004

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Montevertine Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Pian del Ciampolo 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose is full of earthy, waxy cranberry fruit edged with notes of pine and roast beef. On the palate this is young and bright with surprisingly rich texture and very ripe wild berry fruits. Juicy, fine and long, this is a wonderful example of fresh Sangiovese at its best. 88pts Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Montevertine Il Sodaccio 1990

    Snoothrank:

    What a fantastic nose full of effusive leather, spice, earth, herb and slightly gamey small red berry fruits with just a hint of super elastic bubble plastic volatility. The nose gains a rare meat/roasted meat tone with air. This is absolutely at peak with just a hint of agressiveness to the ever so slightly astringent tannins that don't preeve... Read More
