Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Aglianico, and Merlot
Region: Colli di Salerno, Campania, Italy
Not far from Salerno, Montevetrano is surrounded by mountains and gets its name from a Medieval castle dating back to Roman times. This is a blend of Aglianico (the king of red grapes in the Italian region of Campania) with French varietals Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in new oak for 10-12 months. It shows delicious aromas and flavors of blackberry, black currant, and baking spice, with some savory notes of leather and tobacco. Perfect for a lover of Super Tuscans who wants to branch out!
