Notes from the Winemaker:

Montevetrano takes its name from a medieval castle that dates to Roman times. A former property of the French Bourbons, the estate itself was the inspiration for this blend of French varietals with the Campanian king of red grapes - Aglianico. Pleasing scores of wine lovers around the world with its distinctive character and rich spectrum of flavors, Montevetrano is one of the most sought-after wines from Italy.

Tasting Notes:
Deep ruby-red in color, aromas of blackberries and spices complement undertones of black currants, licorice, tobacco, earth, and leather. On the palate, Montevetrano is full-bodied, yet elegant with fine-grained tannins and a rich, silky texture.

Food Pairing:
Pair this wine with roasted beef, demi glaces, black truffle ravioli, and beef Wellington.

Varietal composition: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Aglianico, 20% Merlot
Type of oak: French
Length of aging before bottling: 12-14 months

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas and flavors of blackberries and blueberries with licorice and black-pepper. Medium to full body. Chewy, yet refined and balance. Another two or three years of bottle age would bring it more together. Try after 2021 to soften." - (28 Aug, 2019)

95 Points - Vinous:
"Fully saturated ruby-purple. Gunpowder green tea, flint, cocoa, coffee, blueberry and blackberry jam on the knockout nose. Smooth, elegant, rich and round, this big, dense wine has a massive but refined presence, thanks to its uncanny, lovely sugar/acid/tannin balance. Finishes long with lingering concentration and density, not to mention a multilayered appeal that is hard to deny. Very well done. " Ian D'Agata - (Nov 2019)
