'It’s interesting how the petit verdot grape keeps popping up in conversation these days. Back in April, in Bordeaux, a good few of the châteaux mentioned that they were planting more and when I tasted this “Super Tuscan” the other day I was delighted to see that this underrated grape majored in the blend – 55% petit verdot, 25% cabernet sauvignon and 20% cabernet franc. 

Monteti is made from 28 different micro-plots, which are all vinified separately in bespoke vats. You can taste the care and attention that goes into this intricately assembled wine. It is like a vintage car purring on a forecourt, pristine and glinting in the sun, begging you to get in for a tear around the countryside. 

I absolutely love the class and elegance on display here and, because it is not a silly price, I venture that Monteti is in a league of its own. Every reader should buy a case – every palate will adore this wine, I promise.
