List of products by brand Montevetrano
The Montevetrano story starts in the mid 80s, with a group of friends who love wine and has the desire to experiment. It was 1983, and among them there were Silvia Imparato and Riccardo Cotarella. After six years, there is the first bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon 90% and Aglianico 10%, the first vintage of a wine that will adopt the same name of the castle: Montevetrano. An extraordinary success, that still continues today. Silvia and Riccardo wanted to create a very high quality wine. And so it was.
Today Montevetrano is a 26 hectares estate about 5 of these are vineyards), in the Monti Picentini Regional Park, in southern Italy. The vineyards are in San Cipriano Picentino, in a former Bourbons’ estate at 100 meters above sea level, on the crest of a hill among oaks, chestnuts, hazelnut trees, citrus grove and olive trees, by the shadow of an ancient medieval castle. The boundaries are marked by blackberry bushes and old roses introduce to the rows in the "Horse vineyard", near the ‘700 country house. Montevetrano at the beginning was just a blend of a few friends. But like all the wines even friendships mature, evolve, improve. Today the group has changed, grown, and is composed of Silvia, the owner, "the boss"; Riccardo Cotarella, an old friend who is now a very "prestigious" enologist; Mimì, Domenico La Rocca, born in Montevetrano, the winegrower/cellarer; Patrizia Marziale, precious and historical assistant of Silvia; Gaia, graphic designer and daughter of Silvia, who lives in the far hardworking Milan; Monica Martino, the secretary, who arrived later, but it is as if she was always with us; and, last but not least, Guido Groppi, the commercial director.
