COLIN’S WINE TIP: 4/05/17

COLINSWINETIP

Wine of the week:

2005 Tenuta Monteti “Monteti”

93 points Robert Parker

The 2005 Monteti is wonderfully expressive. Espresso, mocha and French oak are layered into a core of black fruit, grilled herbs and cassis. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Wine tip:

This week’s featured wine has been featured before. We sold out of it and I thought it was gone forever. I was very excited when the opportunity arose to purchase it again. More importantly, from the same vintage that I liked so much. These winery cellared bottles were kept on the estate until 2016. No need to age, drink this wine now! It shows beautiful secondary characteristics. I’ve shared a few bottles with friends since its return and I love it more every time I have it. Better hurry before I drink it all myself. It is a real possibility.
