The philosophy of Tenuta Montemagno valorizes the indigenous varieties of Monferrato: it means giving value to the region itself, to our identity and inheritance.
In this corner of Monferrato, UNESCO heritage for the “infernot” – privates houses‘ cellars excavated in the tufa, the Ruchè is the indigenous variety for definition, together with the Grignolino, the Malvasia (sweet aromatic red grape), the Timorasso and the Barbera d’Asti. Tenuta Montemagno sets its production credo on these ampelographic varieties that, combined with high technological vinification systems, make its wines a model of quality and innovation.
The wine making scene is various and valuable: the wines from indigenous varieties go together with the international ones. The offer is more and more ample , the wine communication is accurate and specific, distinctive and professional, the consumer is definitely more educated. In this frame, the issues of the wine guides – Mysterium Barbera d’Asti Superiore docg 2016 finalist for the 3 bicchieri Gambero Rosso, the points of the international wine magazines – TM24 brut 92 points of Wine Enthusiast, and the international wine competitions’ medals –The Global Sparkling Masters gold medal to our TM36 brut, Mundus Vini gold medal to the Soranus Barolo docg the Solis Vis – Timorasso; the silver of IWSC to the Mysterium Barbera d’Asti Superiore docg 2016, and all become the added value .
The prize and the consequent global visibility are important for the producer and the consumer: in some way, they represent the confirmation of quality , identity and discovery.
The last rewards we published on our social pages and the feedback we had in terms of sale and wine tasting, all remark that the Italian consumer is curious about new wines to approach and is willing to taste the wines from indigenous grapes. First of all, the consumer wants to be surprised by the deep identity of wine and territory.
The so called “millennians” lead the way.
In the international markets, the medal and the high scores are the confirmation of the increasing attention to the indigenous variety and to the innovative style. These factors inevitably lead to our wines and our wine production philosophy – the TM method.
Tenuta Montemagno, through its vineyards and grapes, tells how the wine marries the nobility of the soil with the sky’s chronicles, the deep vineyards’ roots with the sunny bunches, and the careful wine maker’s hand with the producer’s intuition.
Our wines guide through a knowledge path that starts from the indigenous variety and goes to the innovation and the tradition, to return, inevitably, to the heart of Tenuta Montemagno.
