MONTERO was born from the union of the terms Montepulciano and San Severo and wants to underline the strong link of this important vine to our territory.
MONTERO is one of the first labels put on the market by our company in the 1960s.
The current blend, in addition to the presence of Montepulciano, includes a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon which is able to better soften the vigorous tannins and make the aromatic spectrum more complex.
