Vintage 2008

TERRA DI MONTEVERRO


We like to refer to our Terra di Monteverro as the little brother of our top Monteverro wine because the Terra is produced from the same vine varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, so is also a classic Bordeaux cuvée. It goes without saying that strict selection in the vineyards, harvesting by hand and the utmost care in the cellar are par for the course here. The difference: some of the grapes come from different parcels, even the composition of the cuvée may vary. A wine with an excellent price-performance ratio which even in the early years was quite open and accessible and entices with the aromas of the shrubland as well as

"Radiating the Tuscan sun from every pore: this accessible ""Maremma"" blend from 2008 is bursting with red berryfruit, aromatic character and spiciness. A wine to be enjoyed with gusto! Ideal with free-range roast chicken and roast potatoes."
