2020 Rosato Tenuta Monteti
|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Franc|
A rainy and mild Winter, followed by a dry and fresh Spring were a good foundation for this pale, perky Rosé. The vines were happy and healthy and developed perfectly in this crucial first stretch. Summer too was quite dry, fresh in the first half, and then much hotter from the end of July. The Merlot dedicated to TM Rosé was hand harvested, from sunrise to noon, on the 18th and 20th of August, the Cabernet Franc on the 29th. Picked early to retain a bright pep - which works so well. This is bursting with energy. Tightly wound for now - this will once again be an exuberant, fresh rosé in the Provençal mould for perfect summer aperitivi! L&S (Mar 2021)

Pretty notes of fresh-cut roses and young peach lift up from the 2020 TM Rosé. It’s soft textured yet lively and fresh, with ripe orchard fruits balanced by juicy acidity and sweet citrus. While a bit short on the finish, it’s pleasantly crisp and perfumed. This is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Drinking range: 2021 - Rating: 89 Eric Guido, www.vinous.com (Jun 2021)
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.
Do you tire of endless bottles of super-pale Provence rosé? Do you yearn for something different? Fancy some pink of a different provenance? He be the answer - a dozen bottles of rosé from elsewhere; a bit French, a bit Italian and a slightly funky Spanish organic pink.
