Winemaker's Notes

Quite dark ruby red. Rosso di Montalcino has a pervasive bouquet, very generous and varied,with hints of violet, raspberry and pomegranate. The flavor is warm, dry, generous, and well-balanced.

Pairs well with red meat, pasta with sauces, and mature cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and full of juicy plum, cherry and sweet berry notes, this red oozes charm without sacrificing varietal character. Harmonious and long."
