MONTEVERTINE MONTEVERTINE IGT TOSCANA 2014

1 Current Inventory

Juicy red and blue fruits rest on a bed of crushed herbs and wildflowers, earth, cedar shavings, baking spices and a kiss of white pepper in this pure, refined ’14 Rosso. Restrained and elegant, but with time in the cellar, it’ll reveal its myriad layers, dusty tannins, and sweet inner perfume. A blend of 90% Sangiovese with the rest composed of Colorino and Canaiolo, the Montevertine Rosso derives mostly from a single six-acre south-southwest facing vineyard planted in 1982. Made in traditional Chianti fashion--fermented in cement vats for about three weeks followed by aging in Slavonian barrels for about two years--Montevertine Rosso is at its essence one of the most pure Chiantis
