MONTEVERSA 'Animaversa' 2015

The 2014'Animaversa' is a fantastic showing in this vintage. This blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from chalky, clayey soils in the Colli Euganei region in Veneto. Displaying a gorgeous deeply hued, opaque color, this begins to release aromas of blackberries, dark cherries, roasted coffee, sage, tobacco, spices and hints of violets, which all come together in the glass. This full-bodied red is opulent and beautifully structured around round velvety tannins, which are well polished and envelope the palate. It continues to impress with notable concentration and depth, as it glides into the long, sleek finish. I expect this to continue to evolve and continue to gain complexities over the next few years. Drink or hold. (Best 2018-2026) - October, 2017 (JD)
