      “Pian del Ciampolo” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      Due to the careful maturation in large wood, this wonderful red wine retains its full fruit and presents itself with a lot of juice and power. Cherry notes in the bouquet and on the palate combine with a wonderful herbal spice. Its elegant structure and the wonderful interplay of acidity and tannin ensure a very appealing drinking flow. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From the estate's various vineyards spread throughout the Radda commune, Pian del Ciampolo is fermented in cement with indigenous yeast and ages in Slavonian oak casks. It reveals pretty floral nuances of lilac and cherry blossoms after a rainfall. Hints of forest growth and red plum emerge on the palate. It's soft and polished with a delightful lightness of texture and fine, chalky tannins. This is all sumptuous berries and is irresistible now." Decanter

      "The 2018 Pian del Ciampolo is a glorious wine. The purest essence of Radda emerges in a wine with striking translucence and captivating balance. The 2018 offers notable depth with less opulence and more freshness than the 2017. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint and spice are all finely knit in a wine of extraordinary beauty. Readers who may be new to Montevertine and want to explore the wines should start here. Pian del Ciampolo is a real gem in 2018. It will drink well to age twenty, maybe beyond." Vinous

      "The entry-level Montevertine 2018 Pian del Ciampolo is a blend of mostly Sangioveto (otherwise known as Sangiovese) with the complimentary grapes Canaiolo and Colorino. This is a delicate and almost subdued expression that reveals itself slowly, peeling back veils of tart raspberry, wild cherry, blue flower and candied orange peel along the way. After you've played the veil game for a while, there is a point of ripe plum or blackberry confit at the very core of the wine that reflects the vintage warmth. This is a lean-bodied wine with a smooth and polished finish. You might pair it with a Tuscan favorite such as ribbon pasta with wild boar, pappardelle al sugo di cinghiale. The gamey flavors of the dish will offset the wine's racy acidity." Robert Parker

      “Montevertine” Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      Montevertine as the so-called "second wine" of the house proves, like so many of its kind, the true potential of the winery. It possesses an opulence and generosity that is expressed in the bouquet with dark red fruits, some lavender and wonderful spice notes. On the palate, again, a lot of personality, red stone fruit, herbs and some salt. A drop that is hardly inferior to the flagship Le Pergole Torte. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The namesake Montevertine 2017 Montevertine pours from the bottle with a slightly darker hue compared to its predecessors. The phenolic imprint of Sangioveto (with smaller parts Canaiolo and Colorino) is always stronger in the hot and dry vintages like 2017. That more structured and saturated personality is duly followed by generous and intense aromas of black cherry, wild plum, lavender essence and gardening soil. The wine speaks fluently in an authentic Tuscan accent, underling the extreme purity that can be achieved with these indigenous grapes and likewise reminding you of the sheer generosity and freshness that is so specific to Radda in Chianti. There is some dusty dryness on the finish, and this remains an impressive wine from a challenging vintage." Robert Parker

      "The 2017 Montevertine is rich, creamy and beautifully resonant on the palate. Over the last year it seems to have gained an extra bit of freshness, which is of course such a plus in this very hot, dry vintage. Montevertine is often austere, but the 2017 is unusually open today, not to mention incredibly delicious. There is plenty of tannin beneath all of that vintage 2017 fruit. Even so, opening a bottle young is not a crime by any stretch of the imagination. Black cherry, leather, sweet pipe tobacco, licorice and earthy notes develop with aeration, showing just a glimpse of what is in store for those who can wait. The 2017 is a striking wine in every sense. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding further dimensions that will continue to unfold over the coming years." Vinous

    About the winemakersMontevertineTuscany | Chianti
    Montevertine

    If today a wine lover has a bottle of Le Pergole Torte with the characteristic artist's label in front of him, it is hard to believe that fifty years ago this famous winery was only the holiday home of an Italian industrialist who wanted to produce a few bottles of wine for friends as a hobby. And even more incredible is that he just wanted to know if he was okay and sent a few bottles to the Vinitaly in Verona, which were served there by the Chamber of Commerce Siena. It tasted so good even then, because the popularity was enormous and tempted Sergio Manetti to quit his highly paid job and become a winemaker. The rest is an incomparable success story. Today the wines of Montevertine are among the absolute top wines of Italy.

    The vineyard is still comparatively small with its 18 hectares. Only three wines are produced from only three grape varieties. Sangiovese dominates with 90%, Colorino and Canaiolo are added. No international grape varieties, although Montevertine and Le Pergole Torte are often referred to as "Supertuscans". The third is called Pian Del Ciampolo and, according to Martino Manetti, the son of the company founder, who died in 2000, is virtually a second wine in the sense of the Bordeaux classification. In addition to the three wines, an exquisite olive oil is pressed in very small quantities and a fine grappa is distilled from the Sangiovese grape marc.

    Nine vineyards, all located at about 450 m above sea level near the dense forests above Radda in Chianti. This small region is often described as one of the best in the Chianti-Classico area. The nearby forests and the mountains behind create a cooler climate, especially at night. A lot of wind blows the fog out of the vineyards early and dries the grapes well. The soils are stony and calcareous, which often gives Sangiovese its more filigree and elegant wines. Until 1997 about 3,200 vines per hectare were planted in Guyot education, the newer vineyards became denser, with up to 5,000 plants and are cultivated in the Italian Cordone Speronato education. Since 2009 we have been working strictly organically, fertilizing with our own compost and fighting the wine diseases with the minimum of copper and sulphur.

    In the cellar "very traditional, but with modern equipment" is used. The hand-picked grapes are macerated for about a month in concrete tanks without temperature control and then aged for one to two years in large Slavonian oak barrels. Only the pure Sangiovese Le Pergole cake is put into French barriques for a year and then into the large barrels for another year. Martino Manetti, with the help of his oenologists Bruno Bini and Paolo Salvi, continues his father's unmistakable, idiosyncratic traditional style. Very gratifying. The international wine critics, who rave every year and award the highest distinctions, naturally also find this. We are convinced that you will also be enthusiastic, especially if you give the wines some time after opening. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Since then, the wines of the house have become showpieces for the whole region and provide a Sangiovese that is hardly more complete in Tuscany. Unmistakable in style, original and well-balanced, Montevertine wines have earned an absolute top position in the national wine league."Gambero Rosso
