A dense, rich red with loads of blackberries, black licorice, sage and blueberries. Some slate, too. It’s full-bodied with rich yet polished and integrated tannins. Flavorful finish. Dried meat and bacon with some smokiness at the end.
Zupackend, tiefgründig, mit großartiger Struktur und mit enormem Potential 2020 der Monteverro – WT97+
An almost perfect wine with intense purple colour and violet hue.Although initially quite closed the wine is opening up slowly expressing an exciting and complex aroma reminiscent of incense, white pepper, raw meat, fresh blood, sage and basil as well as beetroots, roasted red peppers, sweet blackberries, ripe cherries, black olives and rum marinated fruits. On the palet impressing and multi-layered with powerful characther, yet elegant and fresh. Ripe and expressive tannins, excellent aromatic depth and leght, multi-layered, repeating the flavour of the nose. A great wine with a touch of “Bordeaux” but distinct “italianità” showing a promising potential for further evolution.
Monteverro always delivers excellent results, and this is more true than ever in this balanced and classic vintage. Although the 2016 Monteverro is never a terribly territory-driven wine (it’s hard to place it from Capalbio, Tuscany, per se), it is a beautifully executed rendition based on a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. The bouquet is rich and multidimensional with dark fruit, plum cake, sweet tobacco and sweet baking spice. It is tight and well-assembled, with lasting intensity, yet its power is ultimately reined in by an elegant personality. I tasted bottle 3,121 of 17,929 made.
