2012 Monteverro Chardonnay Maremma

$64.95

Made in Italy by our friend and colleague Jean Hoefliger, this is Tuscan Chardonnay at its very best, a wine that will thrill the Napa Chardonnay fans in your life. Antonio Galloni called it “subtle, nicely balanced wine. Hints of almond, dried pear, smoke, slate and apricot wrap around the soft, open-knit finish.”

Ornellaia. Sassicaia. Guado al Tasso. You’re likely already familiar with these titans of the Tuscan Coast that rival the great wines of Bordeaux and the Napa Valley, with plush personalities and mystically inviting aromatics. To this elite list you should add the wines of Monteverro. Monteverro is a 50 hectare farm in Capalbio, about 2 hours south of Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast. The estate was created by a young German entrepreneur named Georg Weber. Weber wasted no time developing this beautiful site into a world class vineyard, hiring Michel Rolland as a consultant, along with our friend Jean Hoefliger, who can do no wrong. At least when it comes to wine. “Monteverro is one of the most exciting young properties I have come across in a while.” – Antonio Galloni If you love great Cabernet with a soft, sweet fruit profile, these wines are for you.
