Monteverro - Tinata 2013
Monteverro - Tinata 2013 (91 TSW)
Blend of 70 % Syrah and 30 % Grenache from Maremma / Tuscany region.
One of the bottles we drank during our Christmas holiday.
About the wine:
Terroir with clay and limestone with eroded stones. Extreme block selection and fermentation in stainless steel and barrel, natural fermentations, 100% gravity, punch downs by hand. 70% of the juice spent 16 months in French oak barrels with 40% new oak and the remaining 30% aged in concrete eggs. After that no fining and no filtering.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a medium(+) ruby red color with violet reflections.
On the medium nose aromas of blackberries, black currants, cherries and cedar with hints of mocca, rosemary, plums and spicy dark fruits.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with medium(+) acidity and medium, fine integrated tannins. Flavours of red fruits, black tea, tobacco, earth and spices with a medium(+) length finish.
In order to produce unique and authentic wines, German entrepreneur Georg Weber trusts the advice of renowned French experts: the soil specialists Claude and Lydia Bourguignon as well as the world-famous wine consultant Michel Rolland.
Only hand-picked fruits of the highest quality are processed very gently in the cellar. The details of winemaking make the heart of every winegrower beat faster. In a cooling tunnel, the grapes are cooled down to seven degrees. No pumps are used, only gravity is used to produce silky tannins. In the barrique cellar, the temperature under the wooden barrels can be increased by underfloor heating if malolactic fermentation is interrupted.
