Type: Red Wine
It’s been 30+ years since winemaker Signor Manetti refused to add Trebbiano grapes to his Chianti Classico, causing him to leave the appellation. As a result of his commitment to the ultimate Tuscan varietal, Montevertine remains outside the consortium, simply labeling its wines “Rosso di Toscana.”
The 2018 Montevertine follows the traditional blending formula of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Colorino that goes through a simple winemaking process beginning in cement and continuing into oak casks for 24 months.
In keeping with the well-established house style, the wine delivers enormous quality and clarity, with notes of bright cherry, rose, cassis and fragrant potting soil.
