Sergio and Thea were revolutionaries. A revolution that started in the vineyard (one of the first to have a high planting density per hectare and to experiment with non-traditional vines and was one of the first Italian wineries to switch to organic viticulture) to continue in the cellars. Vittorio and David, their sons, continued the life's work after the death of their mother in 1989. Important collaborations were established with the best Italian oenologists: a young Francesco Spagnolli in the early 1980s, then Vittorio Fiore to Donato Lanati, whose teachings were fundamentally were for Vittorio's growth. After that, Tre Monti has experienced serious growth and is seen as one of the top companies of the Romagna region and this is also endorsed by the press, being the first to receive the "three glasses" in Gamberro Rosso in 1997) followed by many high ratings ( The 2008 Thea was one of the first Sangiovese di Romagna to receive 90/100 from Wine Spectator, Thea Passito, even 94/100 from Wine Enthusiast.

And to get even more flavor, the grapes are left hanging for a long time. So Vendange tardive … and is soaked on stainless steel for 15-20 days with skin contact by Tre Monti. He therefore gives the impression in the nose that it is an almost sweet wine. But appearances are deceiving.... Clearly honey and apricot also in the taste, clearly dry with the acids in the wine that cut through it tightly. A wine for "open minded" wine drinkers. For the risotto with roasted almonds, orange zest and parmesan flakes. Bold with a pumpkin curry.
This is a so-called Orange wine and that means nothing more or less that it is a white wine made from white grapes but whose skins ripen with this wine and with this wine the skin contact has been no less than 15-20 days in cement tanks. The great thing about an Orange Wine like this is that you can taste many characteristics of red wine in this Orange wine.
