Winemaker Notes

The intense ruby color and the bouquet displays aromas of blackberries, a sour blackcherry note and balsamic with hints of mint and sage. Full-bodied and rich to the palate, well-balanced, with a dense texture and long, matured tannins.

The ideal accompaniment is with game, strong cheeses and roast meat. "This is the first commercial release of this wine, made by Roberto Cipresso from an estate on the western edge of Montalcino planted in 1994. This 2001 starts from a tight place, black with a scent of sappy fruit and the feel of hard, mineral tannins. Scents of rose petal begin to appear with air, those floral aspects contrasting the potent depths of flavor. A blend of old-fashioned elegance with clean, modern grace, this is built to last - a 20-year wine." 94 Points

Tenuta Oliveto
The property, located at the extreme south of the Montalcino boundary, was bought in 1994 and it had been totally abandoned, but the land had always been dedicated to the vineyards. This was a great opportunity, in as much as it gave us the chance to create an estate without any compromises, not needing to rely on somebody else's choices. In 1997 we began making our first Brunello and a Rosso di Montalcino, "Il Roccolo", while with the '98 vintage we began to produce a Rosso di Toscana, "Il Leccio" as our basic wine.

Prosecco

View all wine

One of the world’s most popular and playful sparkling wines, Prosecco is a specialty of northeastern Italy, spanning nine provinces of the Veneto and Fruili-Venezia Giulia regions. A higher-quality version that must meet more stringent production requirements is known as Prosecco Superiore and must come from the town of either Valdobiaddene or Conegliano. Prosecco can be produced as a still wine, a semi-sparkling wine (“frizzante”), or a fully sparkling wine (“spumante”)—the latter being the most common. While it is typically produced in a “brut” (dry) style, its fresh and fruity character preserved by the tank method of carbonation often makes it seem a bit sweeter than it is in reality. “Extra brut” styles incorporating higher levels of residual sugar are quite popular, however.

Made from the Glera grape, which was formerly and confusingly called Prosecco, these wines are notable for pleasant flavors of peach, pear, melon, green apple, and honeysuckle. Lower pressure during the carbonation process means that the bubbles are lighter and frothier than in Champagne or other traditional method sparkling wine, and less persistent. Prosecco is also a great choice to blend with orange juice for mimosas for a classic brunch beverage.
