Winemaker Notes

Montiano is deep ruby-red in color and exhibits a wide range of aromas, from vanilla to red berries along with layers of jam and sweet spice. It is powerful and full-bodied, yet well-rounded on the palate with an elegant and lingering finish.

Pairs brilliantly with cassoulet or hearty casseroles, smoked beef or cured sausages, and roasted lamb with mint sauce.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Montiano is and always has been the Cotarella family pièce de résistance. The 2015 Montiano (100% Merlot from Lazio) is a deep and richly textured wine with thick layers of dark fruit and sweet spice. The wine ages in Nevers and Tronçais oak barriques for 12 months. The 2015 vintage was warm, and that extra heat adds to the power and the softness of the wine.
JS 92
James Suckling
Dark berry, blackberry, tea leaf, and dried lavender. Full body, layered and polished. A pretty and focused red.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Sculpted tannins are layered with crushed blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors in this medium-bodied red, accented by hints of black licorice snap and graphite that linger on the chewy finish. Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2025.

Known as the ancient homeland of the Latins, today there is a vigorus wine industry beyond the city limits of modern, bustling Rome. The Cesanese grape, full of red berry, spice and rose, is responsible for Lazio’s only true local reds. Lazio’s most famous white wine, called Frascati, is based on the local Malvasia del Lazio and Trebbiano Toscana. A sweet version, called Cannellino di Frascati, is also made.

With generous fruit and supple tannins, Merlot is made in a range of styles from everyday-drinking to world-renowned and age-worthy. Merlot is the dominant variety in the wines from Bordeaux’s Right Bank regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol, where it is often blended with Cabernet Franc to spectacular result. Merlot also frequently shines on its own, particularly in California’s Napa Valley. Somm Secret—As much as Miles derided the variety in the 2004 film, Sideways, his prized 1961 Château Cheval Blanc is actually a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
