2011 Tenuta Monteti
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot, Alicante Bouschet, Petit Verdot|
A wonderfully fresh and bright red from coastal Maremma with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. It perfectly balances some prettier floral notes with the deep richness of cherry fruit that Tuscany produces so well together with a light note of nutmeg and cinnamon oak to finish. Elegant and moreish and frankly at this price, one serious bargain. Rating: 91 www.thewinegang.com (Jan 2017)

Already with some attractive evolution on the nose. Full and ripe but with sufficient structure and acidity. Full of character. Exciting. VGV Drinking range: 2014 - 2019 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Sep 2016)
The 2011 Caburnio offers an unusual level of freshness and vibrancy for the year. A wine of aromatic lift and finesse, the Caburnio graces the palate with a bevy of sweet floral notes, silky tannins, red berry fruit and cinnamon. Drink this perfumed gracious Maremma red over the next few years. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Alicante-Bouschet, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

Supple and structured, this delicious red offers scents of Mediterranean scrub, mint, blue flowers and ripe berries. Made with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 20% Alicante, the juicy palate delivers Morello cherry, cassis, mocha and wild aromatic herb notes. Supple tannins carry the savory flavors. Enjoy through 2016. Rating: 92-92 The Wine Enthusiast (Jan 2015)
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.
