The 2013 Montevertine is a firm, classically built wine that is likely to require quite a few years to unwind. Bright acidity and beams of tannin provide the structural backbone. Still very primary and unevolved, the 2013 has closed down considerably since I tasted it from cask last year. The searing, mid-weight style will appeal most to readers who enjoy classically austere wines, but bottles opened before the age of ten are likely to not be particularly enjoyable. This is a wine for the long haul.
