    "Pian del Ciampolo" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

    Due to the careful ageing in large wood, this wonderful red retains its full fruit and presents itself with plenty of juice and power. Cherry notes in the bouquet and on the palate combine with a wonderful herbal spiciness. Its elegant structure and the wonderful interplay of acidity and tannin make for a very appealing drinking experience. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Bright, luminous ruby red. Shows fragrant-floral on the nose, of wild strawberries, flowering geraniums, fresh cherries and a hint of rose hips. Supple and juicy on the palate, opens a crisp fruity dress, slightly salty, drinks very well." Falstaff

    "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
