Type: Red Wine
The prestige wine of Montevertine is only produced in outstanding vintages. This wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 18 months and then racked into small French oak (Allier) barrels for the final six month stage of its elevage. It is produced primarily from an organically-farmed two-hectare vineyard in Chianti Classico planted in 1968 exclusively to Sangiovese vines with a north-northeast exposure.
Deep, dense, and nuanced, with dark berries, black cherry, spice, rose petal and a touch of new French oak.
