Montevertine Toscana IGT 2015

"This beautiful wine grabs your attention from the start." says Monica Larner of Wine Advocate. Montevertine makes one of the best wines of Italy, Le Pergole Torte, but Montevertine is no exception. Respect, extreme care for details and know-how and the same traditional winemaking since the first vintage. 

Montevertine 2015 is rich, opulent, dense and loaded with flavours of dark fruits, violets, forest floor, sweet spices. All in balance with elegance and freshness with seamless, silky tannins and long finish. One of the most beautiful Sangiovese.

Better in 2020 - 2035

REVIEWS AND AWARDS

94-96 points Wine Advocate

This beautiful wine grabs your attention from the start. Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2015 Montevertine opens to a rich and beautifully saturated color. The wine's density is more extracted and dense, and the aromas are abundantly generous and opulent as a result. Yet, all that excess is carefully contained within the elegant and nuanced approach so perfectly expressed by this historic estate. Blue flower definition with violets and lavender segue to dark fruit, spice and white pepper. The blend is 90% Sangiovese with smaller parts Canaiolo and Colorino. The wine is fermented in cement and then ages in oak for two years. Montevertine sees fruit sourced from the same vineyard that makes Pian del Ciampolo, but fruit here represents a first selection.
