Jean Hoefliger is also the consulting winemaker for Monteverro, a fantastic producer in Tuscany's Bolgheri. Look for fresh aromas of lemon pith and lime blossom, minerals, and a sweet green melon aroma. So refreshing and bright for Sunday afternoon day-drinking with a good book in the backyard.
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.
