Spellbinding Refinement: 2014 Montevertine Rosso di Toscano

Posted by Joe Salamone

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 beautifully haunting aromatics.

For us, these are some of the greatest and most elegant expressions of Sangiovese around.

Montevertine's Rosso di Toscano is a bottle that we have a deep affection for. We've had absolutely brilliant bottles with over a decade of age. While Le Pergole is the pinnacle of the estate, the Rosso di Toscano represents incredible value. It's one of the smartest buys that we know.

Today, we're happy to offer Montevertine's 2014 Rosso di Toscano at $49.95 on bottles and $44.95 in 4-packs

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. When you combine this with the wine's nuanced complexity, you get a clear picture why we consider Montevertine's Rosso di Toscano an essential part of our Italian program and why it's a fixture in our cellars.

The 2014 is an especially bright and aromatic vintage for the wine. It really pops with high-toned herbs, crystal clear minerality and a freshness that adds a beautiful lift. In short, it delivers gorgeous class and expressiveness.

Montevertine's 2014 Rosso di Toscano is a very compelling example of the singular class and soulfulness that the estate is able to tease out of the Sangiovese grape. It's very much worth considering a 4-pack purchase, because this is a bottle that you'll want to return to and track its evolution over the next seven or more years.
