This is the winery's fulcrum bottling, produced from 1971 to 1981 as Chianti Classico Montevertine and since 1982, following its exit from the Chianti Classico Consortium, simply as Montevertine. From selected Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino grapes, it matures for two years in Slavonian oak barrels. Colorino gives, precisely, color and florality; Canaiolo, on the other hand, lets us feel the fruit and helps support the tannin and freshness of the Sangiovese. The grapes come from a vineyard area of 2.5 hectares, defined by rows with southeast and south exposure. Harvesting is done manually.
Dull red in color, but with great vivacity and brightness. On the nose notes of red fruits, black spices and fresh as licorice. In the mouth is a wine with a complex texture, full and enveloping, structured by a present and marked tannin. It concludes with an herbaceous finish reminiscent of underbrush, from fern to moss, with good persistence.
