Eighteen single Vineyards, 38 terroirs, 55 hectares, as self contained as a turtle: Sangiovese of different clones, Canaiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Gamay, Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet-Franc, Malvasia Bianca, Trebbiano, Chardonnay. Monterinaldi today is an estate in conversion to the organic management which will become organic certified from 2017 vintage.
This is a rosé that drinks like a red wine, a rosé wine that non rosé drinkers can love. This medium red/rosé colored wine has aromas that reveal a wide sensation of small red fruits like wild cherry and wild strawberry. On the palate the taste is quite smooth with a full body, no oak, aged in cement vats you can taste all the fresh fruit taste of the Sangiovese and the soil and minerals of the Tuscan terroir.
