If our flagship wine Monteverro is a Grand Cru wine, then Terra is its 1er Cru sibling. It is crafted with similar intention as Monteverro – blending together Bordeaux grape varieties grown in our unique Maremma soils. Terra di Monteverro also is a wine that is managed with strict selection in the vineyard and treated with the utmost care, as with our flagship. The true difference between these two wines is in the parcels from which the grapes are sourced, and some potential variation in the precise blend.

In this vintage, the blend is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Each lot is harvested by hand at optimal ripeness and vinified separately in both neutral barrel and stainless-steel. Aging is done in French oak barrels (60% new) for 20 months before unfined and unfiltered bottling.

This wine is a floral and fruity explosion with a strong and persistent character. Aromatic touches of laurel, sandalwood and cigar give this wine a lively and interesting drink.

Press Notes : 

94 points, James Suckling – “Extremely floral and aromatic with blackberry, violet and sandalwood character. Full-bodied, tight and focused with rich, chewy tannins, yet pointed and focused. Needs time to open and come together. Better after 2023."
