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.
A velvety-textured red with lots of dried-fruit, hazelnut and walnut undertones. Full and flavorful but rich and chocolatey. This is just a baby now. Needs three or four years to soften: better in 2017.
