The Monte 2014 is a seductive wine with a dark colour, beautiful bouquet of red fruit, violets and a touch of vanilla. Its creamy and softly textured with a backbone of solid tannins, focused and fresh with a very good fruit intensity on the finish. It can be enjoyed now but will evolve nicely over the next 5 years.
