Lea&Sandeman blog: Tenuta Monteti, a model wine estate comes of age

L&S the prestigous London’s wine merchant on Tenuta Monteti

“The L&S team at Vinitaly voted Tenuta Monteti’s 2008 Monteti the most exciting wine we tried there this year… The 2007 was and is excellent, but the 2008 is just something else – finer and more streamlined, with astonishing complexity and class for a wine hovering around the £20 mark…  you have got to try this now, but it has potential for another five or ten years too.” from leaandsandeman.co.uk

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.
