This wine has been given Tre Bicchiere in the Gambero Rosso for 24 years in a row.
Montevetrano's 2013 vintage is an impressive achievement. It has notes of blueberries, sour black cherries, blackberries combined with hints of tobacco and silky tannins. A wine that stays in the mouth for a long time. This wine is now special to drink but can age for years.
Between the end of September and the beginning of October, Montevetrano harvests first the Merlot grape, followed by the Cabernet Sauvignon and finally the Aglianico. Fermentation takes place initially in steel vats for about 21 days, after which the wine matures for 12/14 months in new 225 liter barriques made from Nevers and Allier and Troncais oaks. The process is traditional but also strictly controlled, which guarantees good refinement and balanced maturation. The process also ensures that the grapes retain the typical regional characteristics of Montevetrano. Cotarella, the winemaker, is extremely proud of this wine, the very first icon wine he created; he considers it the father of his red wines.
