Cabernet sauvignon 45%, Cabernet franc 35%, Merlot 10% and Petit verdot 10% make up the blend. Dark purplered colored with a light transparency. Very shy while tasting it, but like Terra di Monteverro 2009 it shows very rudimental its power and elegance. Créme de cassis, dark cherries, pepper, herbs and lots of freshly made blueberry marmalade. Profound and Juicy. Mega-fine-grained tannins of high quality and a refreshing acidity. Distinctive from the 2008 vintage, this Monteverro is definitely cooler without lacking power. Great finish. Best from 2016 through 2030+.
