A Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine that has 15% of high-acid Alicante Bouschet which adds freshness. Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc are also part of the blend. It's very expressive with concentrated red cherry and plum fruit but also precision and finesse. Rating: 91 Christelle Guibert, Decanter (Apr 2017)
A taut, linear style this exhibits cherry, almond, soy and underbrush aromas and flavours. Focused, with precise balance and a firm dense structure. Fine Length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Alicante Bouschet, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drinking range: 2018 - 2027 Rating: 91-91 Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator (Dec 2016)
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.
