Winemaker Notes

This Cotes du Rhone blend pays hommage to owner Georg Weber's mother, Tina. Red fruit aromas, such as cherry, raspberry, and cranberry, harmoniously mingle with subtle hints of florals, herbs, and spices, such as ginger, cinnamon, and coriander, and geranium, lavender, and rose. The entrance is fresh, but finishes sweet with nuances of grenadine and a touch of cassis. Fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels, Monteverro Tinata is aged in 40% new French oak barrels and 60% egg-shaped concrete tanks for 16 months.

Blend: 70% Syrah, 30% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
A blend of Syrah and Grenache, this delivers Rhône Valley-like characteristics of ripe fruit, black pepper, smoked bacon and exotic spice. But it has an Italian personality in the form of fresh acidity and Mediterranean spice and blue flower notes. The finish is soft, velvety and chocolaty.
JS 93
James Suckling
Alluring aromas of blueberries and currants follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a subtle dark chocolate and fruit aftertaste. A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache. Better in 2015, but who can wait?

Monteverro, Tuscany, Italy

You could blame Georg Weber's change of life on a Bordeaux Premier Grand Cru Classe, and on an evening he spent in Lausanne with a friend. That was when the young university student first tasted a glass of truly great claret, and when his life took on a new direction. The memory and thrill of that fantastic wine set him on a new path that would, a few years later, lead him to Monteverro, near Capalbio in Tuscany.

Monteverro is a lovely estate located between Capalbio and the sea, in an area that until recently had never had much success producing wines. In 2003, before buying this 50-hectare farm there, Georg Weber wanted to make sure it would be able to produce the kind of wine he remembered from those memorable tastes of the Medoc. He ran tests on Monteverro's soil and growing conditions, and was satisfied with the results the lovely hills he'd fallen for could give him.

In honor of those memories, he planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, as well as some Syrah and Grenache. Chardonnay and Vermentino are the white grapes. By 2008 the grapes began to bear the kind of fruit Weber was interested in. In 2011 Monteverro's first five wines were released on the market.

One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

Rhône Blends

View all wine

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, red Rhône blends originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley. Grenache, supported by Syrah and Mourvèdre typically form the base of the blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. With some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in Priorat, Washington, Australia and California.

In the Glass

The taste profile of a Rhône blend will vary according to its individual components, as each variety brings something different to the glass. Grenache is the lightest in color but contributes plenty of ripe red fruit and a plush texture. Syrah supplies dark fruit flavors, along with savory, spicy and earthy notes. Mourvèdre is responsible for a floral perfume and earthy flavor as well as structure and a healthy dose of color. New World examples tend to be fruit-forward in style, while those from the Old World will often have more earth, structure and herbal components on top of ripe red and blue fruit.

Perfect Pairings

Rhône red blends typically make for very food-friendly wines. These can work with a wide variety of meat-based dishes, playing equally well with beef, pork, lamb or game. Braised beef cheeks, grilled steak or sausages, roasted pork and squab are all fine pairings.

Sommelier Secret

Some regions like to put their own local spin on the red Rhône blend—for example, in Australia’s Barossa Valley, Shiraz is commonly blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to add structure, tannin and a long finish. Grenache-based blends from Priorat often include Carignan (known locally as Cariñena) and Syrah, but also international varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, anything goes, and it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
