Montiano Merlot Lazio IGP 2019 - Famiglia Cotarella

Acclaimed from the outset as one of Italy's greatest and most innovative reds, Montiano is the result of a blend of Merlot grapes planted by grafters from Montpellier in an area traditionally devoted to white vines. Merlot, however, proves to have a great capacity for adaptation on these hills and the grapes are able to reach an extraordinary level of ripeness, thus giving rise to wines of the highest elegance, perfectly balanced and remarkably pleasant. Specifically, this Merlot comes from vineyards with low productivity. The grapes, harvested by hand, immediately upon arrival at the winery undergo a rigorous manual selection process so that only the best berries are sent to fermentation. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the resulting wine is passed into French oak barriques, where it matures for no less than 12 months. Deep ruby in colour, the nose of Montiano impresses with the richness of its bouquet, with notes of red fruit, spices and hints of vanilla. In the mouth it is round and soft. Elegant, particularly enjoyable and persistent on the palate. To appreciate it at its best, the producer recommends serving it in large goblets, where it can come into contact with oxygen and develop its aromas to the full. At a temperature of 18 degrees, it should be served with haute cuisine meat dishes.

The Cotarella name, in the Italian and international wine world, is one of those of weight. Riccardo Cotarella, in fact, is the best known contemporary oenologist, the one who signs, or has signed, some of the finest wines of recent years. Iconic and successful products, often awarded by wine guides all over the world. Famiglia Cotarella is the family business, founded in 1979, in Montefiascone, in the province of Viterbo, from the work of two brothers, Renzo and Riccardo. A very special project, conceived with a very precise objective, that of recovering the ancient vines of the area. Almost 50 years later, Famiglia Cotarella has become an absolute reference point for quality oenology in central Italy. In recent years, the two Cotarella brothers have passed the hand over to their daughters, Dominga, Marta and Enrica, who take care of every aspect. Today the company has expanded considerably and cultivates land in Umbria and Tuscany, as well as in Lazio.
