Wine Spectator on Monteti 2008 and Caburnio 2010
Wine Spectator’s reviews February 2014
Monteti 2008: 93/100
Starts out with some earthy funk in the aroma, leading to flavors of black currant, licorice, tobacco and spice on the palate. Dense, chewy and balanced, with a long aftertaste of black fruit, saline and licorice. Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2015 through 2024
Caburnio 2010: 89/100
An aromatic version, with flavors of flowers, black currant, raspberry and briar backed by burly tannins. On the wild side, showing personality and length. Should pair well with grilled lamb. Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2015 through 2021.
Diary: 2014 pruning
For the second winter we have applied a new pruning technique. Pruning is among all vine operations perhaps the most decisive for the harvest quality objectives but also the most invasive. This new technique allows us a softer pruning, applying cuts preferably on one maximum two years old shoots. The aim is to better preserve the vine lymphatic system, getting a more nourished cordon, increasing the vegetation homogeneity and the plant longevity. The cuts are also smaller and quicker to cicatrize, the plant is less vulnerable.
Monteti 2007, Gold Medal

Cincinnati, Ohio, 6-8 March.
Monteti 2008, 94 points Parker
THE WINE ADVOCATE by ROBERT PARKER:
The 2008 Monteti impresses for its depth and pure sensual expression of fruit. A warm, inviting bouquet leads to dark cherries, asphalt, graphite, tar and licorice in this rich, dynamic wine. The personality of the Tuscan Maremma comes through in spades. The 2008 is another incredibly reasonably priced wine from Monteti. It will challenge wines costing two times (or more) as much! Monteti is 50% Petit Verdot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak barrels, 70% new. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

New vintages, new labels
Our first vintage was produced 10 years ago and to celebrate the market release of our new vintages we have restyled our labels. The new drawing portraits a corner of the vineyard, with the gigantic boulders in the foreground and in the background of the Monteti label is the hill from which the Tenuta and the wine take their name. This hill also protects our vines from the strong Mediteranean winds.
Maremma between the 40 top destinations of 2014
theguardian.com, Friday 3 January 2014 click here
La Maremma was Tuscany’s final frontier, a quiet area of rugged protected coastline from Capalbio up to Cecina. Over the past few years, though, the cognescenti have been taking notice, and while it is still no Forte dei Marmi (Tuscany’s most fashionable resort), there have been some illustrious openings: Alain Ducasse’s L’Andana hotel in Castiglione della Pescaia (from €300), Leonardo Ferragamo’s marina in Puntone, and Renzo Piano’s £6.7m winery at the Rocca di Frassinello vineyard. But the super-rich don’t have it all to themselves. New to boutique accommodation website i-escape this year is Locanda Rossa (doubles from €120 B&B) in Capalbio, close to the beach at Chiarone. It has 13 rooms, four apartments sleeping six, a restaurant and a pool.
