The Veruzzo di Monteverro blends Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese sourced from the Maremma, on Tuscany’s coast. Deep ruby in color, it offers a concentrated fragrance of cedar, sandalwood, and black plums, and the texture is grippy but tamed by red-cherry acidity. The finish is darker, black-fruited and chewy. It’s a good companion to rich winter fare: braises, stews, game meats, salumi, aged cheeses.
