Vintage 2015

MONTEVERRO


Our flagship. A true Premier Grand Cru of Maremma, made from the classic Bordeaux grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot and yet with the unmistakable character of the Tuscan coast. An ambitious wine in every respect - the grapes are exclusively from prime locations on our slopes which flow gently to the sea, the wine is aged for about 24 months in barriques from the best coopers (70-80 % new wood) and then for two years in the bottle. This gives it an unparalleled strength and complexity, sophisticated coolness and elegance. Its impressive diversity of bouquets ranging from berries and spicy notes increases year on year.

"Small and concentrated berries gave dense aromas in 2015 vintage. It gave life to a wine that is pure ruby velvet, with waves of berries and spices alternating with notes of chocolate and tobacco. A complex and intriguing Monteverro that reveal a perfect vintage"
