      “Pian del Ciampolo” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      Due to the careful maturing in the large wood this wonderful red keeps its full fruit and presents itself also in the vintage 2016 with a lot of juice and strength. Cherry notes in bouquet and on the palate combine with a wonderful herb spice. Its elegant structure and the wonderful interplay of acidity and tannin ensure a very appealing drinking flow. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, sparkling ruby red. In the nose still slightly closed, shy fruit. On the palate very filigree and light-footed, elegant, shows tightly woven tannin with fresh juice, very salty, spans a pleasant arc between beginning and end, overall harmonious, finishes long and clear." Falstaff

      "The 2016 Pian del Ciampolo exudes class and a level of delineation that distinguishes it stylistically (but not qualitatively) from the 2015. Fresh and beautifully nuanced, the 2016 hits all the right notes. A closing burst of lavender, rose petal and mint punctuates the vibrant finish." Antonio Galloni

      "Tasted before its release, the 2016 Pian del Ciampolo is gearing up for spectacular results. This entry level red wine from Montevertine is fermented in cement vats and aged in oak for one year. This vintage marks a return to classic lines and a more subdued personality following the decidedly more exuberant and sun-ripened 2015 vintage. The 2015 vintage was its own wine, but 2016 brings us back to the basics with dark fruit and savory highlights followed by balsam herb and rosemary. The mouthfeel is polished and smooth." Robert Parker

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

      "The 2017 Pian del Ciampolo is rich, dense and almost shockingly concentrated. A rush of super-ripe red cherry Sangiovese fruit, cedar, tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried flowers builds in an unusually supple, racy Pian del Ciampolo that will drink beautifully right out of the gate. Stylistically, the 2017 reminds me of the 2015 in its generous, rich personality, but there is a good bit of freshness as well. More than anything, Pian del Ciampolo is a real overachiever in 2017."

      “Montevertine” Rosso Toscana IGT 2014

      Montevertine - an inconspicuous high carat, which has regularly fascinated us for decades. Generous and full of aromas, balanced and long, an elegant and radiant appearance, simply incomparably good. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A bright layer of primary fruit peels off the bouquet of the pretty 2014 Montevertine. This is a wine of sure pedigree, although the fruit aspires to a lower intensity threshold in this difficult vintage. The wine will surely flesh out with more bottle aging, but the vintage DNA is what it is. This subtle Sangiovese shows long silkiness and crispness on the finish." Robert Parker

      "The gracious, perfumed 2014 Montevertine is a wine of pure finesse. Silky, slender and exceptionally beautiful, it is not the most obvious or powerful Montevertine, but it impresses with its balance, poise and class. Floral notes add nuance to the bright, sculpted finish." Antonio Galloni

      "This is a really fine wine. Bright red with strawberry and lemon rind character. Medium to light body with delicate, silky tannins and a long and persistent finish. Vivid acidity. A lovely wine for a 2014." James Suckling

      “Montevertine” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

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

      "The 2016 Montevertine will thrill fans of the estate's wines. Freshly cut flowers, dark cherry, plum, mint and spice are some of the many notes that are knit together in a Montevertine that dazzles with nuance and pedigree. The 2016 is not an obvious wine, but it has class and persistence to burn, with tannins that are incredibly finessed for a young wine. Quite simply, the 2016 is one of the very finest Montevertines in recent memory. The 2016 was memorable from cask last year. It is every bit as riveting today. Don't miss it." VINOUS

    About the winemakers
    Montevertine
    Tuscany | 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 in Bunde 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 2015
