Terra di Monteverro 2009, Wine Spectator

There’s a bright cherry flavor front and center in this intense, fruit-filled red. Dense and structured, with impeccable balance and supporting roles from herb and spice notes. The fruit- and spice-filled finish is terrific. Best from 2015 through 2023. 2,750 cases made.

14% alc. Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot. After the bottle is open and a glass is filled, the aromas go through a fascinating transformation in the first few minutes. Pronounced woody notes, revealing top quality wood used for maturing, give way to intense mineral, crushed stone sensations, which in turn are substituted by perfumed juicy raspberry notes. The nose finally settles on generous, yet elegant bouquet of fresh ripe red and black fruit with vigorous spicy overtones and Mediterranean herbs. The palate is effortlessly balanced between freshness and generosity of flavours, and remains easy to drink despite 14% of alcohol. Cabernets’ square structure feels softened thanks to long velvety tannins, filled with rich black and red fruit stuffing. Nice volume in mid-palate and staying, spicy finish with mineral nuances round off the wine. While enjoyable now, needs more time for tannins to marry the fruit. Empty glass has an inviting smell of ripe raspberries and strawberries. The ‘second vin’ of Monteverro, but many other Supertuscans will pale in comparison.
