Had a small sample through Coravin. Same bottle as LILJA.
Clear, pale intensity, ruby color.
Youthful, muted nose with hints of the purest red berries, dried violets, orange peel and earth. I'm sure that the nose would've opened up if it got some aeration but we tasted it directly from the bottle.
It's on the palate where it really reveals it's high quality. Dry, high acid, medium bodied with medium(+), very silky, tannins. Smooth and seamless with high intensity of flavors. Long, fresh, silky finish.
A well respected wine enthusiast once described Montevertine as if Sangiovese was grown in Chambolle Musigny. I truly understand that now.
Decanted for 5-6 hours. Pretty dark colours, beautiful appearance in the glass. Cherries, wet stones, gravel road and leather, stunning nose, very much what you expect and hope for in a Montevertine. Racing acidity in front of the gorgeous fruit, hint of stem and that gravel road again. Very solid wine, and very young, this will last and develop for a long time and I would recommend to wait atleast 4-5 years, if you can. Easier said than done...
The wine is aromatic, oaky with red fruits, tannic and medium bodied. Significant smoky flavor. Lack acidity to balance the wine. Overall it's a good wine for dinner, it has to be decanted for 1 hours before serving
Klar, dyp rød med mild kant. Parfymert nese med moreller, tyttebær, lakris og hint av roser. Sursøt og saftig frukt med mild sødme. Moderat intensitet, men godt munngrep. Spisset syre. Godt modnet frukt, med mild sødme. Tørr utgang med milde, lett tørrende tanniner med hint av bitterhet og lett pepper. God lengde.
