With the 2010 vintage you really feel this consistently great wine has somewhat come of age. There have been some tweaks to the blend - with less Alicante now included and the addition of both Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. These add a lovely depth and extra level of intensity, but without adding any hardness. The Monteti winemaking team's aim is for the wine to be accessible and above all enjoyable drinking and with this they have been hugely successful! Half of the blend is now aged only in steel which maintains the fresh feel of this bright and perky red which is so brilliantly put together. This delicious wine is punching well above its weight. 55 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Alicante Bouschet, 15 % Merlot, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. L&S (Apr 2014)

This fine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Alicante Bouschet from the southern Maremma punches above its weight with its bright, cherryish aromatic quality and opulently succulent and spicy dark-cherry fruit, fashioned, as the grapes suggest, more in Bordeaux-like than Chianti mould yet with that attractively breezy, Italianate freshness.

If you like the style of super-Tuscans but find the prices a bit steep the Tenuta Monteti wines, which are stocked by London merchant Lea & Sandeman, are for you. The Caburnio doesn’t even have any Italian grapes in it - it’s a blend of 55 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Alicante Bouschet, 15 % Merlot and 5 % each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. - but the Tuscany terroir shines through in its fresh acidity and sweet, supple tannins. It’s the perfect bottle to drink with some Italian style roast lamb and beans, Tuscan style sausages or even a simple steak. You can buy it from Lea & Sandeman for £14.50 or £12.95 if you’re buying a case*. I also love its big brother, the ripe, lush, sexy 2008 Monteti (50% Petit Verdot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) though at £24.50 a bottle (£19.95 if you buy a case) it’s quite a bit more expensive. Tenuta Monteti is based in the Maremma region which is known for its more modern, fleshy reds but both these wines have real elegance and balance along with their gorgeously seductive fruit. * which can be mixed.

The 2010 Caburnio is one of the best Maremma wines in its price range. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet and Merlot, the 2010 is warm, supple and resonant from start to finish. Mocha, espresso, plums, sweet spices and savory herbs bristle on the palate in this very pretty, entry-level wine from Monteti.

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.
