Notes from the Winemaker:
A traditional, fresch velvety wine, Rosso di Montalcino comes from the Estate’s best vineyards, the same that produce Brunello; 100% Sangiovese with persistent, fruity aromas and considerable structure. This is a very versatile wine suitable for average periods of aging.
Grape variety: 100% Sangiovese (Brunello).
Training method: single double spurred cordon.
Harvest: selection of the grapes and manual harvesting into small baskets, rapid transfer to the cellar for vinification.
Vinification: soft pressing and destemming, temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation, with frequent pumping over and medium maceration on skins.
Aging: in Slavonian and French oak barrels with a capacity between 12 and 54 Hl for about 1 years, followed by aging in the bottle for 6-8 months
Ratings & Reviews
90 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Bright red. Spearmint and inky nuances complicate redcurrant, red cherry, pomegranate and minerals on the complex nose. Bright and fresh on the palate, with sweet red cherry and balsamic flavors lingering impressively. This rich, round wine is similar to a Brunello but maintains a lively Rosso personality. Very well done." - Ian D'Agata (December 2014)
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Aromas of meat juices, forest floor, perfumed berries and grilled herbs lead the nose on this savory, full-bodied Rosso. The dense palate doles out ripe wild cherry accented with orange peel and allspice. Bold, velvety, and fresh, it’s made to be enjoyed soon." - Kerin O’Keefe (11/1/2014)
"Juicy, expressive and pliant, the 2012 Rosso di Montalcino is a lovely wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the fruit retains its juiciness. Sweet red cherries, herbs, cinnamon and high-toned floral notes wrap around the finish." - Antonio Galloni (February 2014)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino is a soothingly sweet and fleshy wine with loads of berry fruit upfront and mild intensity at the back. It offers the easy food pairing potential and bright Sangiovese freshness that you should expect from a good Rosso. Drink: 2014-2017." - Monica Larner (Feb 2014)
