Montevetrano

Montevetrano was founded 25 years ago by Silvia Imperato, a photographer who developed a passion for wine after one of her favourite subjects invited her to a wine tasting group in Rome. Her family had a piece of land in Salerno, and she decided with the help of consulting oenologist Riccardo Cotarella to make wine. The idea was to make Bordeaux wines with a local touch – a sort of “Sassicaia of the South”. Production started very small – 6000 bottles per year – and when the wine started to sell out every year this was increased to 30000. What makes this estate rather special today is that they have always put all of their energies in to making just one wine (until recently when a pure Aglianico was added to the range), and they have stocks of nearly every vintage they have ever made. This makes for a rare and exciting opportunity to put together a vertical offer with impeccable provenance, the wines coming straight from the estate, pre-aged. Though the wines were always more Bordeaux than Campania, typically 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Aglianico, from 2010 there was a shift towards using more Aglianico as temperatures were increasing, making it more difficult to produce the quality that they wanted from the Bordeaux grapes. The new style is very exciting, showing a more linear quality and reminiscent of the wines further north in Piedmont. The future is very bright at the estate, but in the meantime we are very pleased to have some mature vintages to offer (and to drink!)

Montevetrano di Silvia Imparato Colli di Salerno 2010 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The 2010 Montevetrano is flat-out gorgeous. Vibrant, floral aromatics lead to layers of beautifully delineated fruit in this finely sculpted chiseled Montevetrano. A wine of extraordinary beauty, the 2010 impresses for its clarity and nuance. I don’t think I have ever tasted a young Montevetrano with this much pure silkiness and finesse. There is a level of precision and delineation in the 2010 that is truly marvelous. I can’t wait to see how it ages. The 2010 is also notable for a much higher percentage of Aglianico (30%) than has been common in the past, while the international varieties are less prominent in the blend. In 2010 Montevetrano is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Aglianico and 20% Merlot, which means the Cabernet Sauvignon now plays a much smaller role in the blend. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

Montevetrano di Silvia Imparato Colli di Salerno 2017 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (96)

Aromas and flavors of blackberries and blueberries with licorice and black-pepper. Medium to full body. Chewy, yet refined and balance. Another two or three years of bottle age would bring it more together. Try after 2021 to soften.
