Monteverro

Aromas of black currant, cigar box, cassis, and thyme mingle harmoniously on the nose. Hints of raspberries and cherry pie are present as well. Fresh picked red currant and raspberry flavors envelope the palate in a velvety smoothness. Mild touches of fresh blackberries round out the finish of structured tannins.

Wine Advocate

The 2008 Terra di Monteverro is a gorgeous wine layered with sweet dark plums, grilled herbs and spices, all of which flow effortlessly from a radiant, medium-bodied frame. I especially like the way the wine blossoms on the mid-palate and finish. This is an excellent choice for readers who want to get a look at what is happening at Monteverro without spending the money for the more important bottlings. Terra di Monteverro is Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

Score: 92. —Antonio Galloni, August 2011.

Wine Enthusiast

Terra is the less expensive red from Monteverro, made with a Bordeaux-inspired blend of grapes. This debut vintage shows green spice, black fruit, Greek olive and moist clay. It's an impressive wine, with a thick and determined style.

Score: 91. —Monica Larner, February 01, 2012.

Wine Spectator

This is ripe, jammy and sumptuous, bursting with blackberry, cassis, licorice and both salty and sweet elements. It's hard to deny this red's appeal and instant gratification, though I don't get any sense of place. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2012 through 2017. 2,000 cases made.

Score: 90. —Bruce Sanderson, September 30, 2011.
