VIDEO 106. MONTEVERRO REVISITED 2013

23. January 2016

The small town of Capalbio, north of Rome, is home of one of Italy´s unknown treasures among the most exciting wineries – Monteverro. The winery was founded in 2004 and dropped its first wines on the market in 2010 with the 2008 collection. A range of promising and fascinating wines like Tinata, a cuvée made of Syrah and Grenache, Terra di Monteverro, a young and really complex red wine made of Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Merlot and Petit verdot and last but not least the monumental Monteverro, a grand vin, which exhibits any extras a wine lovers can dream of. By the way, like Terra di Monteverro it´s a Bordeaux blend.

The owner, Georg Weber and his wife Julia, put an exciting team together to fulfill their dream to produce high quality wines in the south side of the Maremma region in Tuscany. No one can to it better like the French winemaker Michel Rolland. And so, he was recruited. Together with Matthieu Taunay, a young and ultra-skilled winemaker from the Loire valley.

I visited Monteverro for the first time back in September 2011. It was a pleasure to taste and discover the wines. You can watch the interview here. Once you feel that something is good, you always come back. So did I in May 2012. Enjoy the interview with Matthieu here. In 2013 I finally met Michel Rolland to shoot a commercial for Monteverro. This video can be find here.

Unfortunately I couldn´t find my shooting of the 2010 tasting with Matthieu. I was really pissed off, because I thought that it had deleted them on my hard disk. Well, you can imagine how happy I was, when I rediscovered them last week ago.
Although the interview is nearly two years old, I decided to upload it in my archive, because I think it’s still worth watching and hearing the philosophy of Monteverro. The grand vin is a classic. A wine, which is able to age nearly over the next 30 years easily.
