Vintage 2013


A classic cuvée of internationally renowned grape varieties, kissed by the Tuscan sun. The term “second wine” would not do justice to Terra di Monteverro, although it shares its composition with Monteverro, its more famous big brother: it’s associated with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, which age 18 months in French oak casks. A distinctly harmonious wine that combines structure and intensity, a reflection of the fascinating terroir and the character of the region.

"Terra di Monteverro 2013 blends richness and freshness, expressiveness and balance, a genuine masterpiece of harmony in all its guises. Nota bene: it's terribly good and will improve with time."
