Yellow toned bricking on the edge that leads to a core of cloudy cayenne pepper red. Beautiful. Aromatics are subtle and cohesive. Rustic dusty smells of leather, tea, earth, brambled blue fruits, and very shy note of amaro like herbs.
Sweet fruited, mid weight, still has slight grip. Acidity is lower in this vintage but sweet lemons hold the delicate mid palate. The wine is very cohesive at this point and I would say this is right in the money zone.
Because of the lower acidity I would drink this soon if you have them. Tertiary notes are still in the background and I would be afraid they would start to overwhelm if they were too present in the wine.
Served blind. Color suggets medium-body with some maturity. Nice nose with light red berries, leather, spice and some earthy flavours. Tart acidity and soft tannins. A bit short finish. Some lack of fruit on the middle palate. Elegant with a soft body. Excellent with musroom risotto.
MONTEVERTINE VERTICAL (FLORENCE - WINE IN PROGRESS 17/11/2013): The best of the three samples, without any doubt. Ripe and evoleved fruit, so big and elegant, with a hint of truffles coming out. Captivating! The palate keeps its promises and reveals a feminine body fresh, easy to drink sangiovese with a lot of years ahead
Senza ombra di dubbio ( e anche a mani basse) il migliore dei tre. Il naso invade l' aria con un frutto evoluto, corposissimo, elegante, quasi tartufato. La bocca piacevolmente mantiene le promesse e si rivela freschissima e slanciata. Una delizia da bere, ma anche da conservare per un futuro ancora più evoluto.
