Color - Deep ruby red with purple reflections
Bouquet - Fresh, intense aromas of ripe fruit infused with spice from the oak
Taste - Full-bodied and fruit forward, structured by supple tannins
Vinous 89 points - The estate’s 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is succulent and expressive, both of which make it an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, cedar and licorice add nuance on the soft, open-knit finish. This is the first vintage in which the Rosso is made from biologically cultivated fruit from Brunello-designated vineyards. Like virtually all of the estate’s top wines, the Rosso is aged in cask.
Located in southern Montalcino in the area of Sant Angelo in Colle. The vines enjoy a favorable southern exposure granting the vineyards with the blessing of the sun rays the whole day long. Average height is about 1000 ft above sea level.
|Wine maker notes
|Grapes ferment on the skins for twelve days at a controlled temperature of less than 82ºF (28ºC) in shallow, wide steel tanks (150 hl), in order to obtain a delicate tannin and color extraction.
|Serve slightly cooler than room temperature. Well-matched with veal, pork and poultry dishes, as well as duck and goose.
