Potentially the best vintage of Monteti that I have tasted. 55% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvigon, aged eighteen months in French oak barrels, of which 70% are new. The oak is beautifully integrated with the very fine sweet fruit and rounded tannins. This is very smart indeed. L&S (Apr 2012)

The 2007 Monteti bursts from the glass with the essence of blackberries, blueberry jam, crushed rocks and spices. This is a decidedly inky, sumptuous, super-ripe wine that needs a few years in bottle to settle down. The 2007 Monteti is 55% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 70% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jan 2012)
Tenuta Monteti is situated in the southern part of the Maremma, some fifteen kilometres from the border of the region of Scansano, under the hill of Monteti, an amphitheatre which protects the estate from coastal winds. The twenty-five hectares of vineyard are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Alicante and Merlot in individual lots of one hectare, each vinified separately in the new, state of the art, winery.
The wines are marked by a pronounced individuality, reflecting not only the 'terroir' of the region, but more importantly a freshness of fruit and balanced acidity which makes them so very drinkable. They are intentionally understated wines which perform on the palate in a musical fashion - a delicate introduction which builds to the most wonderful crescendo.
