Vintage 2016


The house flagship wine is the finest expression of the Capalbio terroir; this cuvée of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot combines the best locations of our winery. Uncompromising quality control begins in the vineyard with patient care of the vines, rigorous selection during the harvest, and meticulous attention to the terroir during cuveéing. Careful work in the cellar enhances Nature’s gifts. Production quantities are naturally limited; Monteverro’s velvety texture, distinctive complexity, and striking, multi-faceted bouquet are the result of each individual phase of the production process.

"Monteverro 2016 leaves no space for pleasantries. Iconic. The perfect vintage and the wise hands of the winemaker have given birth to an eternal and monumental Monteverro. Faceted and rich like a prism, it winds its way between elegance and intensity, equating the nose and the palate in a regal way."
