If you love great Napa Valley Cabernet or great Bordeaux, you need some of this wine. This is one of our favorites form the Tuscan Coast, year in and year out. The Wine Advocate said it was a gorgeous wine that excels on many fronts including extraction, intensity and richness. The bouquet opens to aromas of dark berry and spice, with lingering tones of tobacco, resin and blackberry jam."
This blend of Cabernet, Cab Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot can hang with the big boys from Bolgheri any day of the week, PERIOD.

The remote hills of Capalbio in southern Tuscany is where the Monteverro team decided to put down their roots. The unique hillside terroir and proximity to the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west provide the perfect environment for making world-class wines with a distinct style and personality. Combine that with a no-holds-barred approach to winemaking, including a plethora of "spare no expense" cellar toys and gadgets - not to mention having Jean Hoefliger (of Alpha Omega and Newton fame) as the man behind the winemaking curtain - and you have the recipe for producing wines that rival the great houses of Tuscany for supremacy. The vines planted on this esteemed property are only eight years old (at most), which is astounding given the level of depth and complexity that these wines possess. Accolades and scores have already started pouring in, but give these vines a few more years to mature, and watch out for a coming of age party of epic proportions. You'll want to reserve your spot on this guest list now. These folks are playing for keeps.
