In the 2017 Montevetrano (Colli di Salerno)I find depths of crushed blue and blackberries, laced with minerals, sweet exotic spices, and cocoa powder, as dark, alluring floral tones pull me closer to the glass, offset by a hint of fresh mint leaf. It floods the palate with silky textures and cool-toned black fruits, as brisk acids carry the 2017 Montevetrano effortlessly across the senses, leaving a coating of savory spice, minerals, and fine tannin. The finish is long and structured, clenching the palate with youthful grip, as hints of black fruits fade to reveal echoes of violet florals. There’s so much density on the palate, yet it is somehow lifted, seamless, and precise, with all the raw ingredients needed to evolve in the cellar over the next ten to twenty years. Gorgeous.

A finely detailed red, fresh and focused, featuring a pure beam of ripe black currant fruit, layered with subtle accents of wild herb, star anise, graphite and iron. Medium- to full-bodied and elegant, with creamy tannins firming the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Aglianico and Merlot. Drink now through 2030. 1,300 cases made, 397 cases imported.

Region: Campania

Campania in Italy is one of the world's most fascinating and beautiful wine regions, located in the west of Italy, in the 'shin' of Italy's boot shaped peninsula. What makes Campania so special is the fact that wines of quality and distinction have been produced in this region for an astonishing length of time, indeed, archaeologists believe that Campania is a truly ancient wine region, with evidence of vineyard cultivation dating back to over three thousand years ago. Today, there are wineries located all over the varied region, making the most of the different soil types and climatic conditions Campania enjoys. The region is also blessed with an astonishing amount of different native grape varietals, and scientists have identified as many as a hundred different species, many of which are used to produce the region's characterful and unique wines.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
