Montevecchio Rosso

Montevecchio Rosso 2017

Heathcote, Victoria   |    750ml   |    12%
From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The site is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range, comprised of the famous red earth of the region. The Montevecchio wines are made the highly skilled Sandro Mosele whose minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.

The 2017 Montevecchio Rosso is a co-fermented field blend made from a collection of loveable, red Italian varieties. This wine includes lagrein, nero d’Avola, sagrantino, schioppettino and refosco; an unlikely yet delicious bunch! Aromas of vibrant raspberry and purple fruits are balanced perfectly with refreshing acidity. This light to medium-bodied wine has plenty of supple fruit, soft tannins and is designed to be enjoyed young.

"Lagrein, Nero d’Avola, Sagrantino, Schioppettino and Refosco. Light and ‘minerally’, and what you might call ‘water-coloured’. It smells of aniseed/ ouzo, cherry and iron, is juicy and Italianate in style, with light tannin and high interest (and appeal) in its blend of grape varieties. Like it. Rated: 90 Points. Tasted: Dec18 Alcohol: 12% Price: $23 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2022" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The site is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range, comprised of the famous red earth of the region. The twenty hectare vineyard has been planted to thirteen different varieties, predominantly Italian. The name Montevecchio translates literally as ‘old mountain’ referring to the ancient Cambrian origins of these soils.

The Chalmers’ years of experience in viticulture, and their passion for Italian varieties is matched by the care and expertise of winemaker Sandro Mosele. Sandro's minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.
