Montevetrano is a red wine Colli di Salerno IGT, composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Aglianico, Merlot.
It is produced just a few kilometres from Salerno in the winery of Montevetrano owned by Silvia Imparato in San Cipriano Picentino. It is vinified with own grapes and bottled at the estate, to guarantee total control of the whole productive cycle. The composition of the soil is medium-texture, with bones fragments.
Montevetrano has a recognizable style, characterized by complexity, like the territory in which it is born with its variety of perfumes and colours. It is a wine with a strong persistence, that benefits from the influence of the sea and a mild climate. The vineyard is protected by the Picentini Mountains, which form like a crown around the property. Thanks to a careful and respectful processing it the Montevetrano continues to mature in bottles for fifteen or twenty years.
According to the tasting made during the years, the forecasts and experts opinions on the various vintages, Montevetrano guaranties great longevity.
It has the unmistakable quality of the “Montevetranity”!
Montevetrano 2017 is authoritative, refined and tonic with scents of plum, earth and cherry.
Salty in the mouth with accent of black pepper and scent of sage and rosemary herbs which grow on the Montevetrano hills, from which the sea can be viewed. Tannins and acidity are well integrated, which make us imagine a long life in a progressive balanced development. Warm and vibrant with a sober elegance. A magnificent Montevetrano!
