Tenuta Monteti is located in Tuscany, in the southern Maremma district. It is right here, between the Mediterranean scrubs and woods, south of Capalbio, that Paolo Baratta together with his wife Gemma after a long search found the perfect spot to fulfill his ambition: to produce wines of great personality and elegance, which are true expressions of their territory. The vine plantation started in 1999. During the preparation of the land the diggers encountered some gigantic boulders. Due to their monumental beauty, they were gently extracted and placed along the alleys and between the vineyards, standing out like guardians. Naturally, they have become the symbol of the estate.
Tenuta Monteti is today a family run winery with the full participation of daughter Eva and her husband Javier Pedrazzini. Two IGT reds are produced, Monteti and Caburnio. Meticulous care of the vines, selection and research are the watchwords of their work.
