The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino is darkly alluring, lifting from the glass a bouqiuet of crushed violets, blackberries and smoke. Its silky textures soothe all that they touch, as ripe red and black fruits settle upon the senses. There is an elegance here not often found within the Rosso category, as the 2020 tapers off lightly structured, òeaving licorice and black currants nuances to linger.
Made from declassified Brunello grapes in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, this Rosso is fresh and fragrant with pristine blackberry scents accompanied by a hint of chocolate.

The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino shows a deep, healthy garnet color that is a site to behold. This wine is immediately attractive to all the senses, especially the nose.
