Mid cherry red. Wonderfully and intensely fragrant thanks to the fully ripe Petit Verdot. Peppery dark fruit and violets. On the palate, silky tannins, elegant and with terrific harmony – almost gentle on the long finish. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 Rating: 17.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(May 2019)
The 2013 Monteti is a terrific wine with a well-concentrated but seamless presentation of flavors. Black fruit transitions to baking spice, cured leather and bresaola with juniper berry. The bouquet is savory and dark, but it never feels heavy or flat. Indeed, the wine offers a bright and pristine mouthfeel that prizes length and elegance.

The Monteti, flagship wine of the estate, was finalist this year and by a whisker didn’t take the 3 red glasses; blend of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, the 2013 vintage shows at the nose notes of dark ripe fruit blended with herbaceous puffs. In the mouth is enveloping at the fist impact, then progresses linear and compact thanks to an elegant sapidity. Rating: 2 Bicchiere Gambero Rosso(Jan 2019)
Aromas of black currant, baking spice, cocoa and a whiff of orange zest abound on this inviting blend of 55% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. The aromas carry over to the polished palate alongside velvety tannins that give it a smooth texture. Enjoy through 2023. Rating: 92 The Wine Enthusiast www.winemag.com(May 2018)
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.
