The Story

Our Montevero is our flagship wine, a Cuvée blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It is our version of a Premier Grand Cru of Tuscany, and stands for absolute top quality and unique character. We can guarantee this by taking the utmost care and being scrupulously selective when harvesting by hand. We produce Monteverro in minimal amounts from grapes from the best plots of the steep hillside slopes that run right...

Wine Information

As the year before the winter of 2009/2010 was very rainy. Spring warmth has struggled to settle, so that vegetative growth was reasonable and slower than in the past. The rst half of May was rainy and could have caused a dif cult owering but fortunately the situation improved later on. Summer drought was balanced by a relatively covered sky. September was also quite cool with average temperatures around 20° C. There was hardly any rain at the...

Written Notes

Monteverro is the winery’s flagship wine — its version of Tuscany’s “Premier Grand Cru.” This is one of the promising new wines I have tasted from Italy - ever! Dark and deep colour. Surprisingly wide and open nose with loads of wild blackberries, herbs, liquorice, and floral aromas. Solid and firm. Very powerful, almost too gigantic a wine with sweet tannin and a multilayered texture. The gentle, wide and sweet finish lasted almost forever. In my judgment this is fuller and more intense than the exellent 2009 and has better structure than the outstanding 2008.
  • 96p

Intense garnet red colour. Expressive nose with aroma reminiscent of ripe blackcurrants, ripe plums, elderberries and lovage in the background. Mild spices, vanilla, cardamom and Garam Masala. On the palate well balanced with ripe tannins, hints of dark chocolate, slightly toasted aroma, mild spices and dried fruits. Excellent length.

  • 95p

Deep dark ink with ruby on the rim and touches of purple, the wine reveals on the nose an intriguing depth of cedar, black berries, black currant, cherry, nutmeg, humus, black pepper and cigar box balanced with freshness like chanterelle and tulip. On the palate, the wine shows a velvety entrance on ripe fruit like blackberry, cherry, black currant, lingering on a dense structure with hints of blueberry and strawberry. A "legendary" wine with great density and power.
