Tenuta Monteti is a gorgeous property located quite “off the grid” in the very southern Maremma- roughly 150km south of Bolgheri. Owner Paolo Baratta, an oenophile and successful patron of the arts, saw opportunity in this less trodden area, with great soil composition, hospitable Mediterranean climate, and proximity to the sea. The property covers 60 hectares, of which 28 are planted with international varieties, including Petit Verdot and Alicante Bouchet. Why? Significant research and trials concluded
that these varietals thrive and demonstrate a real expression of the local terroir. The winery applies a practical blend of tradition and the benefits of technology. The world-renowned Carlo Ferrini, has collaborated with the young (29 years old), dynamic, Andrea Elmi, to make elegant wines that reflect this philosophical balance. The namesake of the winery is a mountain range that looms in the background of this picture perfect landscape. The label depicts a rendition of rocks that were excavated when the vineyard was being planted. This provides an idea of how “stony” the soil really is. Amazing!
