Ruby red in the glass with a pervasive bouquet. Generous aromas of raspberry and pomegranate, a touch of oak with hints of violet. The wine is dry with well balanced fruit, acid and tannin.
Rosso di Montalcino is made from 100% Sangiovese and is essentially a “second wine” for the “grande vino” Brunello di Montalcino. The zone of production for Rosso di Montalcino is the same as for Brunello and producers can declassify Brunello to Rosso di Montalcino should they wish. The wine is released after September 1st the year following the harvest and there is no mandatory oak ageing requirement. This is a youthful, lighter and fruitier wine style from this famed region. Rosso di Montalcino is more approachable and less expensive than Brunello.
