    Winemaker's Notes:

    A 100% single-vineyard Merlot grown in the Montiano parcel in Montefiascone, Lazio. The volcanic, mineral-rich soil of the Montiano vineyard and a rigorous hand selection of these grapes contribute to Montiano's solid structure and concentration.

    Montiano is deep ruby-red in color and exhibits a wide range of aromas, from vanilla to red berries and fruit along with layers of jam and sweet spice. It is powerful and full-bodied, yet well-rounded on the palate with an elegant and lingering finish. One of the most sought after wines from central Italy.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very pretty mineral, blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with ultrafine tannins and a gorgeous finish. Merlot. Best from 2008 through 2014.

    The 2005 Montiano (Merlot) is a very pretty, accessible version of this wine with an elegant expression of dark fruit, sweet herbs and toasted oak. To be sure the 2005 is a slender Montiano but what it lacks in concentration it more than makes up for with superb drinkability. This is a beautifully balanced wine to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2013.

    Very dark inky-ruby color. Slightly roasted aromas of black cherry, sandalwood and prune are freshened by strawberry and raspberry topnotes. Fat, supple and full, with sweet, sexy flavors of ripe black cherry and milk chocolate nicely framed by ripe acids. Turns just a little raisiny on the long finish, but this is one of the more refined versions of Montiano of the last few years.
