MONTETI CABURNIO TOSCANA IGT 2012 is available to buy in increments of 1
55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Alicante-Bouschet, 5% Petit Verdot & 5% Cabernet Franc
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, the red fleshed Alicante Bouschet and Merlot, grown in the rugged Maremma countryside. The owner, Paolo Baratta and his family are very sensitive to sulphur, so use of SO2 is kept to a minimum. To preserve the integrity of the wine it is bottled without filtration after spending 12 months maturing, 50% in French oak, 50% in stainless steel. Definitely savoury in character, think porcini, black olives, salami, rosemary and cedar,with a tightly wound core of dark fruit. Tenuta Monteti remains arguably the single finest source for reasonably priced wines in Maremma.
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.
