    Critical Acclaim:

    Grace, elegance, poise. These are just some of the descriptors that come to mind as the sublime 2006 Montevertine (Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino) opens up in the glass. This ethereal, mid-weight wine possesses striking inner perfume of sweet red fruit, flowers and licorice. Were it not for the tell-tale Sangiovese acidity, the 2006 Montevertine might easily be mistaken for Pinot Noir. There is remarkably purity and integrity to the wine, not to mention stunning clarity and finessed yet firm tannins that hold everything together all the way through to the long, finessed finish. This exemplary Montevertine is not to be missed. Readers who want to enjoy the 2006 for its primary beauty can drink the wine today, but it is sure to acquire plenty of tertiary complexity in bottle as well. This is Lot L 1408. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.
