Montevertine Toscana 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Montevertine is a showcase wine for the vintage and the native red grapes used in this part of Tuscany. It presents a clean and polished bouquet with delicate tones of rose petal, wild berry, cassis, spice and lightly grilled Mediterranean herb. Pretty mineral nuances also create focus and sharpness at the rear. The wine offers a terrific mouthfeel with fresh acidity that keeps the palate clean. This was not the easiest vintage, but Montevertine is intact and beautiful nonetheless. It will be fascinating to watch its evolution over the next ten years.
