The 2011 IGT Montevertine (Sangioveto, Canaiolo and Colorino) is enormously silky and smooth with a superior sense of finesse and elegance. Radda in Chianti has some of the highest vineyards where Tuscan grapes develop their trademark acidity. Dark fruit and dried cherries segue to delicate spice, chopped mint, blue flower and dried tobacco. Its profound sense of elegance is impossible to miss. This is a beautiful expression that boldly defeats anything negative you may know about the 2011 vintage. It’s a true stunner. Drink: 2015 - 2028 (ML)
The 2011 Montevertine is gorgeous. A rich, textured wine, the 2011 hits the palate with exuberant dark fruit, spices, new leather and tobacco. This is a decidedly rich, layered Montevertine, with darker fruit than normal and plenty of richness, all of which means it will drink well pretty much right out of the gate. Montevertine fans looking for a wine to drink without waiting too long will flip out over the 2011. Drinking window: 2018 - 2031.
Good medium red. Rich, deep aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, licorice, iron and flowers. Plush, supple and broad but also boasts excellent inner-palate perfume and energy. The flavors of redcurrant, raspberry and flint are riper than usual no doubt due to the very warm vintage, yet the wine maintains impeccable balance. Very long on the aftertaste. When I visited the estate just last month, I was told that 2011 was the first time in Montevertine's history that the estate harvested all the grapes for this wine by the end of September, which is unheard of in cool-climate Radda. 91(+?) points
