Brand Montevetrano
Alcohol/vol 13.5%
A strongly persistent wine, it benefits both from its coastal location and mild climate, in a vineyard protected by the Picentini Mountain peaks. With its distinguished style, this is a wine characterised by its sophistication, the complexity of the soil in which it is grown and the scent and colour of the land. Its color is a deep, intense and concentrated ruby red. It has scents of woodland with hints of violet, blackberry and cherry. Spiced tones drawing on liquorice, myrtle, cinnamon or chocolate, mint and tobacco, depending on the year and the development in ripening; well balanced through a magnificent blend of tannins, acidity and wood, it has the promise of a young wine that ages well, transforming from such a sensual concentration into elegance. Pair this wine with with roasted beef, demi glaces, black truffle ravioli, and beef Wellington.

Montevetrano is an impressive blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot and Aglianico that shows the enormous potential of red wines from southern Italy. It will age 10 years or more, and it already shows deeply sophisticated flavors of tobacco, dry fruit and spice.

Concentrated and polished, with a compact core of fresh crushed black cherry, blackberry and cassis. Silky tannins lead to layers of wild flowers, ash and iron that are slow to unfold on the long, focused finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Aglianico. Best from 2013 through 2023. 2,500 cases made.

The 2009 Montevetrano is quite possibly the most accessible young vintage of this wine I have ever tasted. I am accustomed to Montevetranos that are tight and austere, but not in 2009. In 2009 Montevetrano is open and radiant, with layers of dark fruit and a polished, well-articulated finish. The 2009 is likely to be an early drinker, but that doesn't necessarily mean the wine will age quickly. A complete vertical tasted last year and published in Issue 190 found the wines in great shape, including all of the earliest vintages. Montevetrano is approximately 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Aglianico that spent 12-14 months in French oak, 50% new. It remains a benchmark in southern Italian oenology. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2029.
