Region: Tuscany, Italy

Viticulture: Conventional

The Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C. is put in new 50 hectolitre barrels in medium toasted oak from Slavonia for eight months. Rosso di Montalcino has a ruby red colour. The nose is forward with liquorice and cloves and lovely roundness through the mouth. The red cherry, leather and dried tobacco leaf are nicely balanced with fine, lingering tannins.

Sommeliers Recommendation:

A delicious Rosso di Montalcino that is a great example of what can be done with Sangiovese. This wine has firm tannins, earthiness and vibrant strawberry notes on the palate. This would be a great addition to any lamb based dish or Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
