Montevetrano IGT Colli di Salerno Montevetrano 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Montevetrano is simply wonderful in this vintage. An array of ripe dark fruit, grilled herbs, bacon fat and menthol emerge as this opulent, soft-textured red shows off its undeniably appealing personality. The wine continues to gain volume and depth in the glass, leading to an impeccable, classy finish. Usually Montevetrano is shut down at this point in its life, but the 2007 is unusually open. It is also amazing to note how domesticated the Cabernet Sauvignon planted here has become. Readers should do what they can to experience this drop-dead gorgeous Montevetrano! Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027...95" WA06/10

Proprietor Silvia Imparato along with famed oenologist Ricardo Cotarella created Montevetrano and immediately brought an intrnational style and recognition to Campania wines. The blend is roughly 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Aglianico, aged in 50% new oak barrels. The Wine Advocate scored it 95 points saying "The 2007 Montevetrano is the product of an unusual vintage characterized by hot temperatures that were virtually uninterrupted throughout the year. Bright red fruit, flowers and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this silky, beautifully balanced Montevetrano. The combination of explosive ripe fruit, richness and finesse is utterly breathtaking. The warmth of the vintage comes through in the wine’s generosity, yet there are no suggestions whatsoever of over- ripeness. This is a magnificent Montevetrano. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032."

Ruby-red. Balsamic red cherry, ripe plum, graphite, milk chocolate and herbs on the nose. Enters dense, juicy and suave, then turns sweeter and softer, with balsamic, extremely ripe red fruit, cassis and coffee shake flavors joined by herbs and flint... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
