Super Tuscan wines became popular in the 1970s when a few Tuscan producers came to believe that the rules governing Tuscan wines were too strict and did not allow them to make the high-quality wines they desired to make. The founding concept behind Super Tuscan wines was to break tradition and make the best wine possible without blending rules to stand in the way.
Monti al Mare is the embodiment of our winemaking philosophy - not letting tradition stand in the way of making great wine.
With a perfect vintage to showcase ripe flavors while retaining acid, we paired Sangiovese, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon to create a bold wine in the spirit of these Italian pioneers.
With notes of fresh blackberry, sweet tobacco, and clove, our Super Tuscan inspired blend of 40% Sangiovese, 40% Syrah, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, layered, and complex.
