2015 Tenuta Monteti
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot|
The 2015 Monteti is a blend of mostly Petit Verdot with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The bouquet shows savory notes and even a touch of musky animal that is hidden within the rich density and warm-vintage concentration of this Tuscan blend. That meaty personality gives the wine the power and the latitude to pair with grilled steak or game. The finish is driven by lots of dark fruit, with pressed blackberry and plum at the front.

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.
