As spring blossoms and vines wake up, two new Cantina Monti labels came to life. Both wines are from the vintage of 2018. After 15 months in new oak barriques they are ready to be enjoyed, contributing to confirm Ronchi di Cademario terroir’s value.
Both wines, SM and Canvée Dinamic, are now available.

But let’s come to introducing them.


This wine is made to remember and honor Sergio Monti, pioneer of high quality wine in Ticino and Cantina Monti’s founding father. With it, we want to transmit the passion and dedication Sergio has always put into his work, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. This wine is named not only after his initials, but Monti third generation’s as well: his grandsons Sonny, Sanzio and Sabrina.
It’s a classic burgundy assemblage of Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%). Low produczion and rigorous selection of grapes in the vineyard brings only high quality fruits to the cellar. Only four barriques were produces to constitute a small and precious family reserve.

As his name suggests, Canvée Dinamic is Cantina Monti’s first biodinamic wine. Our oenologist Simone Frigerio has been following this philosophy for years, and managed to successfully apply it to a Merlot parcel in Ronchi di Cademario. The result is a pure Merlot from a spontaneous fermentation, without adding selected yeasts or sulfites. This technique reveals the terroir great value.

Wine integrity is preserved by a winemaking without the use of pumps, filters or any mechanical intervention.
It’s definitely a treat to try!
