Monteverro Rosso 2013 IGT

The house flagship wine is the finest expression of the Capalbio terroir; this cuvée of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot combines the best locations of the winery. Uncompromising quality control begins in the vineyard with patient care of the vines, rigorous selection during the harvest, and meticulous attention to the terroir during cuveéing. Careful work in the cellar enhances Nature’s gifts. Production quantities are naturally limited; Monteverro’s velvety texture, distinctive complexity, and striking, multi-faceted bouquet are the result of each individual phase of the production process.

Insight vintage 2013: A very exceptional event occurred in November 2012, with more than 400 mm of rain in 48 hours. This kind of event cannot refill the water reserve because most of it has no time to penetrate the soil, but it explains how tough the climate can be in the Mediterranean area with long periods of dryness and terrific storms. Fortunately, it did not cause damage in the vineyard, the soils were correctly covered with crops and porous enough to limit the erosion. The picture would be incomplete without mentioning a total winter precipitation of 1200 mm until bud break, so finally we can say all water reserves were refilled before the growing season. The rest of the season was much more restful, with only 150 mm from April to October. We had a very even bud break (first half of April) and flowering (second half of May) but quite a small amount of grapes. This can be explained by the last 2 seasons of intense dryness. Therefore, the most natural way for the plant to react is to produce less grapes. The summer arrived slowly and we had just 10 days of intense warmth at the beginning of August, so the veraison occurred in optimal conditions. On August 20th, we had a perfect rain (35 mm) which definitely helped the maturation to goes on and arrived at best from Sept. 4th to Sept. 10th for the Merlot and from the Sept. 20th to Oct. 4th for the other 3 varietals.
