Intense ruby red color. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavor with smooth, velvety tannins.
Enjoy with pasta with meat sauce, roasted and grilled meats and medium strength cheeses.
"The 2009 Rosso di Montalcino is a lush, fruity wine with good body and an attractive personality. The Rosso is aged predominantly in 100-hectoliter barrels, although 30% of the wine is aged in French oak tonneaux. Over the last few years the estate has moved towards a simpler style of Rosso, which is a shame as the older Rossi were wines of real pedigree and class. This is simply a tasty, well-made wine, but not more. Count me among the estate’s fans who miss the more serious style of Rosso that was common here until just a few years ago. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014. "
