About

96

"The 2016 Montevertine will thrill fans of the estate's wines. Freshly cut flowers, dark cherry, plum, mint and spice are some of the many notes that are knit together in a Montevertine that dazzles with nuance and pedigree. The 2016 is not an obvious wine, but it has class and persistence to burn, with tannins that are incredibly finessed for a young wine. Quite simply, the 2016 is one of the very finest Montevertines in recent memory. The 2016 was memorable from cask last year. It is every bit as riveting today. The 2016 spent two years in casks ranging size from 5.5HL to 18HL, with both Slavonian and French oak. Don't miss it."

"Now we're talking! The 2016 Montevertine is a chiseled and sharp expression, with flinty notes of pencil lead and black stone. This is an absolutely divine Sangiovese that is bright and vertical. It is delicate in the mouth, something you'd want to pair with some mild, sautéed mushrooms if anything. It's a beautiful wine with a long and extended aging future."

Product Description:

"Montevertine: the standard bearer of the estate, it is aged 24 months in large Slavonian oak barrels and is composed of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo (with perhaps a hint of Colorino). The fruit for this bottling comes primarily from a 2.5 hectare parcel of vines planted in 1982 on a south – southeast facing slope." -Importer
