Description

History

Silvio Messana is the soul of Montesecondo, born in Florence but raised in Tunisia and Libya where his family cultivated the land. After studying music in Boston and working as a composer and wine salesman in Manhattan, Silvio decided to return to Italy in 1999 to devote himself to viticulture as a winemaker. In 2000 he bottles the first vintage of Montesecondo and in 2003 he converts the property to organic. Today the company covers about 17 hectares and Silvio mainly cultivates Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Trebbiano. The spontaneous vinification of him aims to keep the lively and crunchy spirit of Sangiovese, moving away from the “traditional” vein of Chianti to be more authentic. Silvio’s wines tell a story of the territory, of care and passion for the land, they tell of his sensitivity and his artistic flair.

Tasting notes

Intense ruby red color, with a garnet edge. On the nose notes of ripe red fruit, cherry, ripe berries, slightly dried violets, herbaceous hints, roasting spices, coffee, black pepper and cloves. In the mouth it is lively, enveloping and ample with great acidity, elegant but lively tannins and a mineral base. Definitely long and fruity finish, with hints of spices too.

Possible combinations

In combination it is excellent with well-structured first courses with meat sauce or with red meats in general. Also excellent with selections of medium-aged cheeses.
