Tenuta Monteti is in Tuscany in the southern part of the Tuscan Maremma, in the surroundings of the small town of Capalbio, on the hills, just behind the hill named Monteti. It is right here, between the Mediterranean scrubs and woods, south of Capalbio, that Paolo Baratta together with his wife Gemma after a long search found the perfect spot to fulfill his ambition: to produce wines of great personality and elegance. The Tenuta Monteti is a family owned property.
Tenuta Monteti Toscana Caburnio 2009
Made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante-Bouschet. The grapes are harvested and processed by plots. Each vine plot of each variety undergoes a separate vinification in a dedicated steel vat and is kept classified separately also while maturing in wood or steel until the blend composition is decided. Temperature-controlled spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Long contact of the wine with the lees, natural anti-oxidants, is used to dramatically reduce the need of sulphites. At this price, this is an unbelievable steal.

Tenuta Monteti Toscana Monteti 2007
their flagship wine. It is named like the estate after the hill that protects
their vineyard from the strong Mediterranean winds guaranteeing an ideal microclimate thanks to which
their vines can benefit, protected, from sea proximity.
It is a blend of Petit Verdot (with percentages varying depending on the vintage from 40 to 55%), Cabernet Franc (between 30 and 25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (between 15 and 20%).
It matures for 18 months in medium-toasted French oak barriques, 70% of which are new. This is followed by further 2 years of bottle ageing before being released onto the market. Petit Verdot is the personality, the rebel horse, Cabernet Sauvignon conveys structure and longevity and Cabernet Franc is the feminine element that embraces and softens both.
