This Super-Tuscan doesn’t skip a beat at over delivering on quality at a steal of a deal! This is the 14th vintage of Caburnio and not to be missed! The family works with consulting winemaker Carlo Ferrini, renowned for his Brunellos, to showcase what the perfectly sized estate of 28 hectares can do.
About the wine
Tenuta Monteti has developed this incredible ability to produce a wine that shows the majestic appeal of traditional French varietals with Italian tradition. The estate’s primary focus is on their flagship wine Monteti (which we’ve previously featured) and Caburnio. The family makes sure to note that this is not the winery’s second wine, it is equally as important as it’s big brother.
The winemaker’s notes “Of a brilliant and intense ruby red, opens up with scents of red fruit, morello cherry, warm spices, hints of rose and eucalyptus. Silky and smooth, very rich and balanced, lingers in the aftertaste with fruity and mineral notes.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Certainly ready to drink now but know we’ve had the chance to taste some back vintage and do not overthink tucking a few of these away. This is deal not to be missed!

91 points, Robert Parker
A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2013 Caburnio is a dark and compelling expression from the Tuscan Coast. The bouquet is vertical and bright with nicely delineated tones of candied cherry, kirsch or crème de cassis. The wine shows distinctive elegance, and that comes through very nicely in this balanced vintage. This is an excellent value option.

Made with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot 10% Alicante, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this opens with savory aromas of black-skinned berry, Mediterranean scrub and a whiff of bell pepper. The juicy palate delivers cassis, Marasca cherry and a touch of tangerine zest alongside polished tannins. Drink through 2022.
