From the Producer:
Monteti is our flagship wine. It is named like the estate after the hill that protects our vineyard from the strong Mediterranean winds guaranteeing an ideal microclimate thanks to which our vines can benefit, protected, from sea proximity.
It is a blend of Petit Verdot (with percentages varying depending on the vintage from 40 to 55%), Cabernet Franc (between 30 and 25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (between 15 and 20%).
It matures for 18 months in medium-toasted French oak barriques, 70% of which are new. This is followed by further 2 years of bottle ageing before being released onto the market.
With Monteti we seek the personality of the Maremman territory subjected however to the complexity and elegance of a great wine. Petit Verdot is the personality, the rebel horse, Cabernet Sauvignon conveys structure and longevity and Cabernet Franc is the feminine element that embraces and softens both.
With Monteti we seek a wine with a “reverse spoon” sensorial trend: with a gentle, attractive entry followed by a full expansion and a long finish.
