Montevecchio Rosato is made from 100% lagrein, a variety prized for its Rosato wines in north eastern Italy. Lively purple fruit and floral aromatics and a juicy, plush palate with a hint of herbs and a dry finish makes this rosato a perfect ‘go to’ wine for the summer months.
From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote Vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The twenty hectare vineyard is planted to more than 10 different Italian varieties
and is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range on the famous red earth of the region. 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 to create the Montevecchio range. Sandro’s minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.
The Montevecchio range is inspired by the everyday drinking wines of Italy which are generally fresh and vibrant – often regional field blends – and designed to be enjoyed in their youth, while still showing structure and texture. Components and percentages of blends will vary from vintage to vintage, depending on the season, but Montevecchio wines are always made from Italian grape varieties.
