Wine Spectator 92 points - Marked by vanilla and other spices, this big, flamboyant red shows sweet black cherry, black currant, spice and mineral flavors. The rich texture and sweet fruit offset the beefy tannins. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2015 through 2023. 1,225 cases made.-BS

OTH 94 points - Minerals, spearmint, currants and berries on nose. Full-bodied and chewy with chocolate. Cashmere texture. Needs another three to four years of bottle age.
Wine Advocate 96 points - The flagship estate wine, 2010 Monteverro, is absolutely stunning. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Vineyards are located on a soft incline at the foot of Capalbio facing the glimmering Tyrrhenian Sea. The enormity of this wine cannot be exaggerated: Dark fruit, chocolate and spice make for a rich and opulent first impression. The excellence of the 2010 vintage is on full display thanks to the integrity of the fruit, the supple richness of the mouthfeel and the tangy sweetness of the finish. Monteverro is a relatively new estate that shows enormous promise. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (Aug /201)
