    Il Maggio – 1986 – Montevertine

    Label: Perfect
    Caps: Perfect
    Level: Medium-high shoulder
    Color: Perfect

    Montevertine is located in the heart of the Chianti hills, in the municipality of Radda in Chianti at an altitude of 425 meters. In Montevertine simplicity, respect, attention to every detail and savoir-faire are the guide of every day. Our vinification method is extremely traditional and is always the same used since the first harvests. The hand-picked grapes are fermented in vitrified concrete tanks, without temperature control and carrying out two daily pumping over to keep the pomace cap wet and obtain a slow extraction of tannins from the skins.

The sweetness of a wine is determined by the presence of residual sugars at the time of bottling. The perception of sweetness in a wine roughly corresponds to a minimum sugar content of 35-40 g / l. From zero to this value, the sugars help to create a sensation of body and softness, which gradually, as the quantity increases, becomes real sweetness. A sweet wine can be either still or passito, as well as sparkling or fortified.

Sweet wines are combined in a general sense according to the rule of concordance, that is to say with desserts. However, there are many distinctions and some exceptions, depending on the type of sweet wine in question. Non-sparkling sweet wines, actually almost always sparkling with a greater or lesser content in carbon dioxide, can be had with classic cakes and fruit tarts, red in the case of red wines. Sweet sparkling wines are ideal with leavened pastry desserts, such as pandoro and panettone, or desserts with cream or creams, thanks to the “degreasing” action of the bubbles. Passito and botrytised wines, as well as late harvests, go well with dry pastries (e.g. cantuccini) but in many cases they are a formidable combination for blue cheeses, since their high concentration in sugars is effectively contrasted with spiciness and aromaticity of the cheese. The same goes for sweet liqueur wines, which must be paired with very intense and structured desserts and which can also hold up when paired with chocolate.
