Vintage 2008

TINATA


Paying homage to the great varieties of vine from the Rhône, Syrah and Grenache and proof that excellent qualities are also produced in southern Tuscany. Expressive, aromatic and yet distinctly elegant, smooth, these are the attributes of our second top-class cuvée. The grapes grow on one of our best slopes, all around a centuries-old cork oak close to the macchia shrubland whose typical aromas of lavender, rosemary and thyme are reflected in the wine. The cuvée from both kinds of Grenache - for freshness and elegance - and Syrah - for fruit, strength and body - makes this complex, deep-flavoured wine an exception in Tuscany.

"Revel in a new kind of sensuality: this Tinata 2008 is the best example of a wine that has found its niche in the Monteverro portfolio of wines thanks to its seductive and elegant character. The perfect accompaniment to wild boar chasseur, preferably by the walls of Capalbio. If you aren't close by, a good alternative is an intimate setting redolent with history."
