We pay homage to Mario's home village of Montona (today Motovun, Croatia) by making small lots of ultra-premium Andretti wines that are second to none!
Montona Reserve wines are from the finest Andretti estate vineyards, which set the tone for our 2013 elegant Reserve Merlot. The deep indigo color immediately gives you an idea of what you are in for with this luscious Merlot. THe nose is filled with berry, rich plum and chocolate aromas followed by hints of spice. Similar flavors follow the aromas into a smooth, robust mouth feel that envelopes the palate, yet still exhibits the softness expected in a great Merlot. Soft ripe tannins enhance its lingering finish.
