60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Petit Verdot & 5% Cabernet Franc

A gorgeous red of incredible value, this dark-fruited Tuscan version of a Bordeaux Cabernet blend is juicy and charming but full of depth and sophistication. A baby Super Tuscan and sort of unclassified — neither a famous brand nor 'Chianti' are on the label — this is wildly under-priced for the beautiful, serious thing that it is.

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.

91/100 Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2013 Vintage)
"A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2013 Caburnio is a dark and compelling expression from the Tuscan Coast. The bouquet is vertical and bright with nicely delineated tones of candied cherry, kirsch or crème de cassis. The wine shows distinctive elegance, and that comes through very nicely in this balanced vintage. This is an excellent value option. Drink 2017 – 2024."

91/100 Wine Enthusiast (2013 Vintage)
"Made with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot 10% Alicante, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this opens with savoury aromas of black-skinned berry, Mediterranean scrub and a whiff of bell pepper. The juicy palate delivers cassis, Marasca cherry and a touch of tangerine zest alongside polished tannins. Drink through 2022."
