92Vinous / IWC

...mineral-tinged blackberries and cherries, gaining lift, as dusty florals and a hint of spiced citrus come forward. It’s silky-smooth and pliant, showing the richness of the vintage, while coasting polished red/black fruits across a spine of energizing acidity, as the slightest hint of residual tannin frames the expression perfectly. Purple florals and licorice linger on the lightly structured finish...

92James Suckling

Red berries, dried herbs, cedar and spices. Medium-bodied with some good concentration for a Rosso and showing plenty of red berries to the core and tangy acidity to boot.

90Wine Spectator

Sour cherry, strawberry, floral, tobacco and mineral flavors weave throughout this rich red, backed by a firm spine of tannins. Fresh finish.


Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino

Rosso di Montalcino is a DOC than encompasses the exact same area as the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, the difference being that Rosso de Montalcinos require only one year of aging. Located in south central Tuscany below Chianti, the wines of Montalcino, both the DOC and the DOCG, are made of a Sangiovese clone called “brunello,” which means “little dark one,” a reference to the brown tones in the skin of the grape. Unlike some Tuscan appellations that allow other grapes to be blended with Sangiovese, appellation status Montalcinos are entirely Sangiovese. Montalcino itself is a picturesque, hill-top town not especially well known for wine production until the mid-19th century, when a local vineyard owner isolated the brunello clone and planted it. Other growers followed suit. Nevertheless it wasn’t until 1970s that wine enthusiasts started paying attention to Brunello di Montalcino, which by then was becoming an outstanding wine. Today there are 120 estates in the DOCG, up from about 25 estates in 1975.
