      “Core” Bianco Campania IGT 2017

      Beautiful cuvée of Greco and Fiano. In the bouquet an opulent potpourri of passion fruit, peach and honeydew melon. On the palate not too heavy, but rather dancing and elegant with a wonderfully fresh structure. Complex and full-bodied finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This blend of equal parts Fiano and Greco shows a really tight core with lots of orchard fruit, honey, almond, pear and peach cobbler. Although the 2017 Core Bianco is a simple wine, it offers a complete deal with everything you should look for in an easy-drinking Campania white. There are some pretty notes of crushed mineral as well. Fruit comes from a vineyard with limestone soil located some 400 meters above sea level." Robert Parker

    • "Montevetrano" Rosso Colli di Salerno IGT 2013

      “Montevetrano” Rosso Colli di Salerno IGT 2013

      Montevetrano is the wine that has become superlative: dark ruby-violet-red color, complex, powerful, very elegant fragrance, full of blackberries and currants with balsamic-spicy notes of laurel and black pepper. The taste is as elegant as the finesse, wide, extremely fine, full and warm, with a firm but at the same time soft tannin structure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is a famous red that delivers depth and finesse. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a wonderful finish of blackberry, cocoa and spices including black peppercorns. One of the best Montevetranos in years." James Suckling

      "Intense aromas of red-skinned berry, fragrant blue flower, Oriental spice and a whiff of graphite take center stage. The taut, chewy palate doles out Marasca cherry, blackberry, anise, mocha and a peppery note alongside bright acidity and polished, fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2013 Montevetrano was a little shut down when I tasted it. This blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 30% Aglianico starts off slowly but it does reach full speed with a few quick swirls of the glass. Some 30,000 bottles were made. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with thick concentration of dark pigments. The bouquet needs a little patience before it shows a complete bouquet of rose, spice, dark chocolate and dried blackberry aromas." Robert Parker

      “Montevetrano” Rosso Colli di Salerno IGT 2014

      Silvia Imparato with her delicious Montevetrano has been triggering a storm of desire since the early 90s. The noble Montevetrano is one of Riccardo Cotarella's first creatures and certainly one of his most important to this day. Dark ruby red, full of cherry and blackberry aromas with hints of vanilla and tobacco. On the palate it presents itself spicy, with elegant tannins, good structure and extraordinary unmistakable aftertaste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Good bright ruby. Enticing primary aromas of blueberry, flint, violet, and cocoa, plus a hint of sexy cedar. Sweet, dense and primary on the palate, showing very refined floral lift and intense minerality to the dense red plum and cassis flavors. Finishes fresh, juicy and gripping, featuring a strong saline nuance, substantial fine-grained tannins and terrific length. Truly outstanding wine in the context of the year." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "This is really voluptuous with dried-berry, light jam, menthol and spice character. Full to medium body, velvety tannins and a juicy and fruity finish. Spearmint at the end. A beauty now but will improve nicely with bottle age." James Suckling

      "Deep purple-ruby. Rich aromas of dark plum, black currant, cedar, graphite and minerals on the captivating nose. Then clean, fresh and juicy, offering flavors similar to the aromas and an extremely refined mouthfeel. Licorice and violet elements feature on the long, graceful, multilayered finish. Very promising young Montevetrano." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "I love the polish and complexity to this red. It delivers subtle currant, dried herb and spice character as well as a full body that is tight and focused. Such polished tannins. It goes on for minutes. One of the best vintages in years!" James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Montevetrano
    Campania
    Montevetrano

    "The most exciting thing is when I can taste a wine that I don't know anything about."says Silvia Imparato.

    The pioneer in the Campanian wine world and owner of the magnificent Montevetrano winery, in earlier years she regularly had the opportunity to enjoy many of the lesser-known, but still magnificent, wines of the world. Only then did she decide to make her own wine on the small family estate in the province of Salerno together with the famous oenologist Riccardo Cotarella: This was the birth of Montevetrano. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Aglianico and sold year after year in modified blends, this wine has since conquered the hearts of wine lovers around the globe as one of the world's most famous cuvées.

    Although Silvia's grandparents used to produce wine, fruit, nuts and olive oil for their own use, the trained photographer came to Rome in the 1980s at a wine tasting by chance. From an initial adventure with only a few thousand bottles produced, Montevetrano, a district of the municipality of San Cipriano Picentino, has become a top winery. Today, Azienda Agricola Montevetrano bottles around 30,000 bottles for almost a single label. This exceptional wine, which determines the image of an entire region, is certified by experts to have survived every debate on contemporary tastes and its style.

    The grape varieties harvested in the vineyard under the strict control of Domenico La Rocca are vinified separately in the 400 square metre cellar. The separation of the fruits is carried out because, on the one hand, the harvest times vary and, on the other hand, Riccardo Cotarella determines the final mixture only after fermentation. The wine is first stored in steel vats for about 15 days before resting in new wooden barrels for ten to twelve months. This guarantees proper ageing and a perfectly balanced ripening process that preserves the typical regional characteristics of Montevetrano.

    Cotarella, who has long been a friend of the landowner, is considered one of the most respected representatives of his profession in Italy. The president of the Union Internationale des Oenologues is known worldwide for flagships such as Tignanello and Solaia. And again and again the sought-after wine magician ("Il Mago"), previously unknown regions such as Campania - and above all the Montevetrano winery - to extract absolute top wines. SUPERIORE.DE

    "There are no new fashions or trends that could shake the generally recognised authority of Montevetrano and its creator, Silvia Imparato ... Montevetrano is now rocking an entire wine-growing region, today more of a classic than an avant-garde label."Gambero Rosso
