"These remain some of the most singular wines readers will come across in Chianti Classico, or anywhere, for that matter."
As the Antonio Galloni quote above makes clear, Montevertine is a special estate. Few wines in Italy offer as much finesse, subtlety, or ageworthiness.
The 2018 Montevertine is a powerful example of what makes this address so important and so singular.
Montevertine's Rosso di Toscano is a bottle that we have a deep affection for. While Le Pergole Torte is the pinnacle of the estate, the Rosso di Toscano represents incredible value.
It's one of the smartest buys that we know, especially in vintages like 2018 where the gap between the Pergole Torte and the Montevertine bottling narrows considerably.
We're happy to offer Montevertine's 2018 Rosso di Toscano for $71.95 per bottle.
In any vintage, the Rosso di Toscano stands out with its elegance and refinement. There's an effortless, heartfelt, and graceful quality to the wine that always amazes us. The 2018 excels when it comes to these qualities. There's a radiant lift and an incredible purity of fruit to the wine. Galloni calls the 2018 "one of the most refined, understated Montevertines ever."
Montevertine is in Radda, one of the coolest, highest-altitude spots in the Chianti Classico zone. It is here, and in Montevertine's hands, that Sangiovese reaches an unparalleled level of incisive class and intricate composition.
We've had absolutely brilliant bottles of the Montevertine bottling with over a decade of age. The 2018 seems destined to age beautifully. We suggest that you go deep on this.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2018 Montevertine is fabulous. Bright and translucent in the glass, the 2018 is elegant and light on its feet like few, if any, vintages I can remember. Rose petal, mint, lavender and bright red/purplish berry fruit linger. The 2018 is one of the most refined, understated Montevertines ever. Silky, elegant and gracious, the 2018 is an absolute winner."
