Montello is experiencing a period of revival, mainly due to the Glera grape and the birth of the Asolo DOCG. Yet Ida Agnoletti, a strong-minded producer from Selva, remains faithful to the territory’s production origins: elegant, deep reds. Hence the few hectares cultivated feature Bordeaux varieties, with Glera and Manzoni Bianco playing a supporting role, making for a range that combines character with pleasant drinking. This year their most important wines were left to rest in the cellar, but the Cabernet Sauvignon Love Is ’19 held the Agnoletti flag high. The nose reveals ripe fruit that leaves room for balsamic hints and medicinal herbs, which lend freshness. The house style clearly emerges in the mouth, with a dry, sapid profile and nice acid tension. The Merlot ’19 also did well, an immediately expressive drink with a supple and juicy gustatory development.
