Cassis, tobacco, plum and cedar, bright and fragrant, high toned but perfectly pitched. Grip and richness, gorgeous cassis and plum, lively, fresh, rich tannic structure, bold but balanced cedar, earth and tobacco, very good. Drinking range: 2018 - 2030L&S(Apr 2018)
Tenuta Monteti is situated in the Maremma, close to the Tuscan coast. This, its flagship wine, is an unusual blend based on petit verdot with cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Think Bordeaux meets Italy – there’s structure and some maturity – polished dark fruit, tobacco, furniture polish, cured meat and red cherries.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Dec 2019)
Glowing ruby. Very mature and round. Lots of sweetness and not a bad price for such maturity. Flattering. GV Drinking range: 2017 - 2021 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Nov 2019)
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.
