In stock

A superbly elegant, fresh and textural white from Tuscany. The Montauto vineyard is located 200m above sea level, in the Maremma region on the coast on Tuscany. This is a relatively new region for Italy but this vineyard has some decent vine age. The altitude gives cool nights that preserve acidity and freshness in the Vermentino and Malvasia grapes. Not fruit-driven but with nice harmony and balance, this is a versatile and very sophisticated Italian for the price.

Grape

80% Vermentino, 20% Malvasia

Its Origins

Montauto is a small, artisan operation run by Riccardo Lepri in the normally red-producing area of Maremma in Southern Tuscany. The refreshing Vermentino grape is perfect to capture the estate's philosophy of fresh but subtle and elegant whites that are perfect with food, especially Italian seafood (the vineyards are only 15 km from the coast). Lepri took over the estate after his grandfather Enos in 2001. Alongside winemaker Fabrizio Moltard, they decided to focus on producing mainly white wines, unusual for the region. Following an organic approach they make delicate wines with concentrated flavours that is generating interest amongst critics.
