One of the most gorgeous and seductive expressions of Sangiovese you are likely to find. limited availability, obviously...
Montevertine speaks fluently the authentic Tuscan language of purity and subtle austerity, and at the same time forms the reference for the generosity and freshness so typical of Sangiovese in Radda. On the nose, plenty of dark red fruits, some lavender, leather, sweet pipe tobacco, liquorice and earthy notes that develop nicely with further aeration, offering a taste of what awaits those who can wait. Complex as it goes on, multi-dimensional with floral notes, opening up further and further, long on the finish. A stunning drop that is hardly inferior to the flagship Le Pergole Torte. SUPERIORE.DE
"Sangiovese, with Canaiolo and Colorino, another magic of the house of Manetti. Blackcurrant on the nose, with a hint of quinotto and a touch of clementine peel, very juicy on the palate, with a return of the fruit component and tannins perfectly integrated into the body. Very long lasting." LUCA GARDINI
"The 2020 Montevertine shows a generous, open-knit presentation with dark fruit, blue flower and delicate mineral highlights. It shows a medium-rich core of fruit but also offers a filigree of background nuances that renders it all the more enticing and interesting. The is a true beauty, showing the subtleties and nuances that can be achieved with native Tuscan grapes in a warm vintage." WINE ADVOCATE
"The 2020 Montevertine is evolving into a jewel of a wine. Dark, powerful and imposing, the 2020 impresses with its liveliness and energy. All the elements are so well balanced for a young Montevertine. Black cherry, lavender, incense, menthol and gravel are all combined in this gorgeous, expressive wine. There is so much here." VINOUS
