“This is an excellent Rosso with lots of hazelnut, dried-cherry and berry character. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. A baby Brunello indeed. Drink or hold.”

“Here’s a great taste of Sangiovese from Montalcinoin southern Tuscany. The 2015 Rosso di Montalcinois dark and luscious with cherry and wild berrythat is interwoven within elegant tones of balsamherb and cured leather. Rosso di Montalcino doesnot have the depth or complexity of its big brotherBrunello, but the wine offers a very authentic taste ofthe territory and the grape nonetheless.”

DESCRIPTION: Soft and well balanced, good-bodied. Rosso di Montalcino is a real Baby Brunello. In Camigliano comes from the same vineyards and from the same grape, Sangiovese Grosso. Every year we decide how many bottles of wine we need and we make a sort of declassification of Brunello. The nose is very fruity, with a good acidity and soft texture, balanced very well. It almost an every day wine. The tannin and the alcohol have a good combination. The after taste id fruity and mineral, with a good persistance James Suckling: This is an excellent Rosso with lots of hazelnut, dried-cherry and berry character. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. A baby Brunello indeed. Drink or hold
