With its classic pale onion-skin colour, presents lovely notes of apricot, medlar fruit, pear, winter cherry and pink grapefruit. Delicate and fresh, with a gentle structure that makes it perfect both for “aperitivo” and to accompany fish and seafood dishes. The grapes were early hand harvested, from sunrise to noon. August 25 for the Merlot, the 29th for the Cabernet Franc. Hand sorted and softly pressed at max 0,40 bar, were then transferred into stainless steel vats to ferment at controlled low temperature to keep flavors and freshness. Cold tartaric stabilization at -5° before bottling. Winemaker's notes (May 2017)
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.
