2019 Rosato Tenuta Monteti
|Grapes||Cab Franc, Merlot|
Tasted at our Italian tasting on the 26th February - as always Javier has made a great Rosé that has that sought after paleness of Provence. However, this is made from 80% Merlot & 20% Cabernet Franc and immediately, on the palate, there is a sense of real personality about this wine. Bags of texture (a slightly tannic note), with lots of red fruits. Fresh, vibrant, juicy. A real winner and certainly one to pair with food. Excellent! L&S (Mar 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Quite zesty with a bit more structure than a typical Provence rose. Good food wine with something to get your teeth into. A satisfying rosé for the table. Drinking range: 2020 - 2021 Rating: 16/20 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2020)
Terrific, bright and breezy, red plum and radicchio-redolent, full-on Tuscan pink, mostly merlot, topped up with cabernet franc.Jane MacQuitty, The Times (May 2020)
The 2019 T.M. Rosé is fresh yet also quite earthy, leaning toward savory herbs and crushed stone minerality, as notes of young strawberry and pretty florals come forward. On the palate, soft textures give way to a mix of ripe red berries and melon tones, carried by brisk acids. It finishes a bit short, yet with a mouthwatering, almost-salty quality, which just begs you to take another sip. There may not be unseen depths here, but the 2019 Tenuta Monteti is ready to give a lot of pleasure. Drinking range: 2020 - 2022 Rating: 89 Eric Guido, www.vinous.com (May 2020)
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.
