Brillant ruby red in hue. The nose unfolds to reveal aromas of small fresh berries and a trace of maraschino cherry, melded with hints of blackberries and black cherries and followed by a hint of vanilla. It is a very fragrant wine of good
intensity, warm and supple, with a medium-structure and balanced tannins. On the palate, the wine is suitably dry and sinewy, yet fresh with a persistent aromatic finish.
It naturally accompanies typical Tuscan cuisine with its bold, authentic flavors, such as pasta and risottos made with mushrooms or truffles, pork, grilled meats and medium-flavored cheeses.
"Darker tones of black cherry, black currant and violet mark this dense yet fruity red, which is firmly structured, lingering with a tobacco note."
"The estate's 2010 Rosso di Montalcino is striking in this vintage. Savory herbs, licorice, tobacco and mint are woven together in a wine that stands out for its exceptional balance and polish."
The Wine Advocate
A very good rosso, but not terribly original.
A solid rosso at a fair price.
