Monteverro, Toscana 2012, Tuscany, Italy
Tasting Note: I’ve tried this red blend in the past, and it continues to deliver.
Ruby in color, this wine has a nose of red cherry and red plum with hints of strawberry and orange citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied wine delivers fruit flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is a blend of cabernet sauvignon (50%), cabernet franc (30%), merlot (15%) and petit verdot (5%).
Bottle Note: Bottle No. 3,807 of a total of 17,127.
