    Winemaker's Notes:

    Montevertine's policy of strict reliance on Sangiovese with a small complement of Colorino and Canaiolo is in direct contradiction to the approach of the "super-Tuscan" group of wines which purposely include non-local grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot in their blends. Despite the formal lack of the appellation, Montevertine is one of the rare examples of a true Chianti Classico.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Montevertine comes across as more classic than the Pergole Torte. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support expressive sweet red cherries, freshly cut flowers and mint. The 2009 is a highly attractive, pointed Montevertine that oozes class and elegance. Clean, saline notes inform the beautifully pointed, delineated finish. This is far from an easygoing 2009. The wine still needs time to fully come together.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright, full ruby. Restrained aromas of redcurrant, red cherry, licorice and black pepper; conveys a distinctly rocky, mineral aspect. Juicy and creamy sweet, with very pure flavors of raspberry and licorice pastille. Intense but not particularly sweet, with the licorice quality complemented by a strong mineral tang. Finishes quite firm and very long. This is a very serious, outstanding Montevertine.
