This is a gorgeous red blend from Campania made of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Aglianico and 20% Merlot. Montevetrano takes its name from a medieval castle that dates back to Roman times. A former property of the French Bourbons, the estate itself was the inspiration for this blend of French varietals with the king of red grapes in Campania - 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.  

Look for a deep ruby-red 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. Pair this wine with roasted red meats, demi glaces, black truffle ravioli, and aged cheeses and salumi.

In the 2017 Montevetrano (Colli di Salerno)I find depths of crushed blue and blackberries, laced with minerals, sweet exotic spices, and cocoa powder, as dark, alluring floral tones pull me closer to the glass, offset by a hint of fresh mint leaf. It floods the palate with silky textures and cool-toned black fruits, as brisk acids carry the 2017 Montevetrano effortlessly across the senses, leaving a coating of savory spice, minerals, and fine tannin. The finish is long and structured, clenching the palate with youthful grip, as hints of black fruits fade to reveal echoes of violet florals. There's so much density on the palate, yet it is somehow lifted, seamless, and precise, with all the raw ingredients needed to evolve in the cellar over the next ten to twenty years. Gorgeous.

Like catching up with an old friend, we remember visiting this estate back in the early 2000’s and being blown away by the quality and beauty of the vineyards and property. Beautiful floral notes in the nose lead to a beautifully layered array of multidimensional dark fruit flavors which intensify with each sip. There is no shortage of richness or intensity in the Southern Italian beauty which will drink well into 2025 or beyond.

Silvia Imparato is a leading lady of Campania wine. I visited her a few years back and have such a pleasant memory of her home, with beams of sunlight hitting the bright red tomatoes, lemons and basil plants sitting on the handmade ceramic tiles of her rustic kitchen countertop. Her elegant Montevetrano 2017 Montevetrano is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Aglianico and Merlot. From a hot and dry vintage, this expression shows rich concentration with black fruit, blackberry and cherry confit. Those dark fruit tones are nicely supplemented by spice and lightly cured tobacco. Some 20,000 bottles were made.
