Terra di Monteverro is our sister wine to our flagship Monteverro estate blend. A combination of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot this wine is selected in concert with Monteverro. At Monteverro, our goal in the vineyard is that all of our grapes will make it into our flagship wine, it is in the cellar that certain barrels fit better into this wine to be more youthful with a bit shorter time in wood with less new barrel usage. If Monteverro is our “Grand Cru” wine, consider Terra di Monteverro to be the “Premier Cru” -- very similar in style but more approachable in its youth.
“Blueberries, elderberries, violets and Chinese spices make for a very pretty nose. Medium body, tightly worked tannins and a deliciously spicy and mineral finish. Drink now." 92 points, James Suckling
