Its color is a deep, intense and concentrated ruby red. It has scents of woodland with hints of violet, blackberry, and cherry. Spiced tones drawing on liquorice, myrtle, cinnamon or chocolate, mint, and tobacco, depending on the year and the development in ripening; well balanced through a magnificent blend of tannins, acidity, and wood, it has the promise of a young wine that ages well, transforming from such a sensual concentration into elegance.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Aglianico Taurasi. A former property of the Bourbons, Azienda Agricola Montevetrano is located in a small zone in the hills near the commune of San Cipriano Picentino, not far from Salerno. Purchased in the 40s by the "Imparato grandparents," it originally produced fruit, nuts, wine, and oil for family use. Current proprietress Silvia Imparato indulged in wine as a hobby until she decided to rebuild her family's vineyards in 1985. And in 1993, when the first vintage of Montevetrano was released, Silvia achieved her dream of creating a standout wine from her family's estate. Producing such a small number of bottles (around 30,000 per year), which are sold worldwide, Azienda Agricola Montevetrano holds its customer relationships very dear, feeling it is steering the product in the right direction. Bottle control is also essential for its books, and is something to which it has paid great attention to since the very first days of production.
