In 2020 some Montioni wines were tasted by Vinous:
- Montefalco Rosso Montioni 2017: 91 points
The 2017 Montioni Montefalco Rosso is understated and remarkably pretty, showing dusty blueberry and cherry mixed with crushed stone and violet fowers. On the palate, silky textures give way to a complex mix of ripe wild berries laced with minerals and spice, all riding a core of juicy acids, as hints of tannin slowly collect toward the close. The finish is teeming with energy, even as it slowly dries the senses with its youthful structure, yet there's plenty of primary fruit to maintain balance. Very nice. This is a blend of 65% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 15% Sagrantino deftly aged 12 months in barrique."
- Umbria Grechetto 2019: 88 points
"The 2019 Montioni Umbria Grechetto is wonderfully expressive and perfumed, showing sweet peaches, a spritz of lime, almond paste and white and yellow spring flowers. It’s soft and fresh on the palate, offering young orchard fruits and a mix of saline-minerals and zesty acids that add mouthwatering tension. The finish is clean and poised with a bit of a sour note, like biting into a perfectly ripe Granny Smith apple."
