Montevetrano 2008

Inky ruby color, with a youthful nose of black fruits, licorice, tobacco and sweet nutmeg and cinnamon spices. The palate offers dense blackberry and black plum over smooth, supple tannins, with toasty oak notes on a lingering finish. It's eminently drinkable now, but will become more expressive in the next three to five years and develop for another decade beyond that. Pair this 2008 Montevetrano with red meats, wild fowl, mature hard cheeses or charcuterie.

Montevetrano 2008
More information:
Campanian superstar wine Montevetrano burst onto the scene in 1995 and achieved cult status almost overnight. Italian photographer Silvio Imparato initially had just 4 hectares of vines south of Naples and made a little wine in 1991. Encouraged by the results she hired winemaker Ricardo Cotarella to help with the 1992 vintage. In 1995 she sent vintages 1991–1993 to Robert Parker who gave it a high score and famously called it the ‘Sassacaia of the south’. With this, the wine became sought after overnight.

What is online only?

We have an amazing selection in our shops but we can only squeeze so much in.  Our selection of Online Only wines and spirits aims to give you more choice.

We don’t stock these products in our shops so it will take a little longer for us to fulfil your order.  Instead of a 1-3 day delivery window, expect it to take 3-5 days before you receive your order if it contains Online Only products.

In order to keep delivery costs down, we will dispatch your entire order (of both in store and online only products) together.

Do case discounts apply to Online Only wines?

Yes!  As always, we offer a 10% discount on orders of 12 or more bottles of wine.  Wines on promotion are not eligible for a further 10% reduction but they can be used to make up the dozen.

 What else do I need to know?

Because we don’t control the stock of these products, there is a slightly higher chance of an online only product being out of stock.  We have a system in place to try and avoid this happening but it’s possible to have a small delay in the information exchange between ourselves and our suppliers.  We promise to notify you as quickly as possible of any issues with availability.
