Reviews of purchase Monteverro, "Terra di Monteverro", Toscana IGT, 2013
The wine has an intense cherry red color.
The taste of wine combines richness and freshness, expressiveness and balance. The explosion of fruit tones steadily holds its intensity thanks to well-structured tannins. The aftertaste reveals hints of tarragon, cannon and cedar.
The aroma of wine opens with distinct shades of cherries, raspberries, black currants and sun-dried tomatoes, after aeration enriched with notes of fried meat, alpine pine, thyme, rosemary and tobacco.
The wine is combined with red meat and game, seasoned cheeses.
"Terra di Monteverro", Toscana IGT called the younger brother of the flagship wine "Monteverro", as it is made from the same grape varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Their vineyards are located in the Grosseto Capalbio region, in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma. Berries are picked manually by careful selection. Fermentation takes place naturally in stainless steel tanks and barriques, depending on grade and site. The wine is aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (60% of them are new). It is bottled without clarification and filtration.
Monteverro's vast economy extends over 60 hectares on the southern outskirts of Tuscany in Maremma. This region, known for its authenticity and traditions, is characterized by proximity to the sea, a love of life and a passion for art, but also heavy, uncompromising agricultural labor. The local wines owe their success not only to the magnificent exposure, sea breezes and rocky red clay soils, but also to the people who make Monteverro so unique. The winemaker, Gene Hofliger, carefully monitors the quality of their products.
Of the entire land adjacent to the Monteverro farm, vineyards occupy only 35 hectares. The rest of the territory is reserved for olive groves, shrubs and a lake surrounded by old cork oaks. The king of nature is considered a wild boar, in whose honor the company is named. "Verro" in the language of the locals means "wild boar." All human activity here is subordinate to nature: even the architectural solution of the winery was determined by the desire to merge to the maximum with the surrounding landscape.
