1999 Montevetrano Colli di Salerno

SKU #995984

95 points Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Montevetrano is a rock-star wine. Still remarkably fresh and vibrant, the 1999 bursts from the glass with layers of dark berries, grilled herbs, leather and tar. There is a level of richness, depth and sheer power to the fruit here that is simply mind-bending, while the wine’s overall sense of balance is breathtaking. Another decade-plus of fine drinking seems like a sure bet for the 1999 Montevetrano. Imparato describes 1999 as a hot vintage in which the harvest began in late August. Curiously, the wine shows no evidence at all of heat, but instead comes across as exceptionally well balanced" (08/2010)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
