    "Monteverro" Toscana IGT 2016

    Monteverro - a classic French blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot - brims with opulence and diversity. Rich, dark ruby with a black core. Incredibly rich in aromas of dark fruits, chocolate and spices, soft, full body, polished tannins. It is impossible to exaggerate the joy of the magnificence of this wine. SUPERIORE.DE

    "An immensely complex bouquet, which has developed further compared to the barrel tasting, with blue and dark berries, fine minerality, which goes in the direction of graphite (pencil lead) and iron, wonderfully elegant and precise, the change in style towards more elegance and finesse, which was already clear in the younger years, is still there. In the mouth, enormously powerful, yet wonderfully supple and linear, the pressure is somewhat reminiscent of the younger Figeac vintages with this blueberry-infused breed and freshness. Wow, I like it even more than three years ago, which results in a plus sign in the rating. It is slowly coming into drinking maturity and has potential for a good two decades. A great Maremma Grand Cru." Weinwisser

    "Rich, deep dark ruby violet. Opens with rich notes of blueberries and blackberries, lots of clear fruit, subtle resinous tones in the background. Lush berry fruit on the attack, then opens with a coat of fine-mesh tannin, supple, lots of pressure on the final, sweet melting." Falstaff

    "Monteverro always delivers excellent results, and this is more true than ever in this balanced and classic vintage. Although the 2016 Monteverro is never a terribly territory-driven wine (it's hard to place it from Capalbio, Tuscany, per se), it is a beautifully executed rendition based on a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. The bouquet is rich and multidimensional with dark fruit, plum cake, sweet tobacco and sweet baking spice. It is tight and well-assembled, with lasting intensity, yet its power is ultimately reined in by an elegant personality." Robert Parker

    "This is another incredible edition of this wine. The fruit pops straight out with pure blackberries, blackcurrants and blueberries. Then, if that wasn't enough, the nose reveals dark herbs, citrus, iodine, crushed stones and pressed violets. The quality of the tannins blows you away, as they take you on a journey through layers of dark fruit, supported by cutting acidity and savory undertones. Very long on the refined yet chewy finish." James Suckling
