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.

I love the polish and complexity to this red. It delivers subtle currant, dried herb and spice character as well as a full body that is tight and focused. Such polished tannins. It goes on for minutes. One of the best vintages in years!

Deep purple-ruby. Rich aromas of dark plum, black currant, cedar, graphite and minerals on the captivating nose. Then clean, fresh and juicy, offering flavors similar to the aromas and an extremely refined mouthfeel. Licorice and violet elements feature on the long, graceful, multilayered finish. Very promising young Montevetrano.

A rich and creamy red, with dark chocolate and smoke notes underscoring blackberry coulis and crème de cassis flavors. This is medium- to full-bodied, bright and brambly, with sleek, chewy tannins firming the finish of graphite and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Aglianico. Best from 2020 through 2028. 1,470 cases made.
