About 10 years into our winemaking at Terreno it was time to take the next leap. We had till then produced a Chianti Classico and a Riserva, but now a new ‘family member’ was born. The most recently introduced grapes, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, were well rooted and started to yield fruit.
In 1995, the first vintage of Terreno’s Super Tuscan was produced for the very first time but it was not until 4 years later that our customers and friends could enjoy the result. The Momento Massimo rests in the winery for at least 4 years before it is ready.
The philosophy of this wine is that it shall sail everywhere without any predestined harbour, a flirt with our past in shipping. It is an international wine with a deep and powerful taste. A wine for the perfect moment – il Momento Massimo.
Since then we have introduced one additional grape variety – Petit Verdot – to further enhance our Momento Massimo.
Vintages of Momento Massimo are only made when the harvested grapes are of the utmost quality. And now at last, after several years of waiting, here it is: Momento Massimo 2015 IGT Super Tuscan, release in November 2019.
Vintages of Momento Massimo: 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2015
