Tasting notes

A deep ruby precedes a nose rich in well-ripened fruit, with blueberry, redcurrant, and cherry well in evidence, enhanced by floral notes of sweet violets and smooth vanilla, tobacco leaf, and cocoa. In the mouth it is intense, velvety, and well balanced. The palate shows striking complexity, with broad, emphatic tannins. A long-lingering finish beautifully binds everything together.

Terroir


A cru selection with its initial vintage in 1974, Montesodi is made only in exceptional growing years. It is produced from Sangiovese grown in the Montesodi vineyard, which, at 400 meters’ elevation, has always been regarded as the finest on the Tenuta for growing Sangiovese. It yields a rich, intense wine of remarkable aromas.
