Winemaker Notes

Deriving from fruit grown on the younger vines of Valdicava Filai Lunghi, Lago, Cipressi and Nova vineyards, this '12 Rosso shimmers across your palate on a bed of ripe berries and plums, a smattering of cinnamon, and a touch of earth, leather and cigar wrapper. A Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino is a "baby Brunello" in any year, and it allows Brunello enthusiasts to experience the beauty of the vintage years before Brunello's release.

Critical Acclaim

V 90
Vinous
The 2014 Rosso di Montalcino represents the majority of the harvest in a year that was extremely challenging and plagued with rain in the days leading up to the harvest. A pleasant, fruit-driven Rosso, the 2014 is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next 2-3 years, while the fruit retains its brightness. Sweet spice and floral notes add an attractive upper register through to the supple finish. There is a limit to what Abbruzzese and his long-time winemaker Attilio Pagli could do in 2014, and this is it.Barrel Sample: 88-90

Valdicava Winery Image
Montalcino is home to the opulent of the Sangiovese grape. At our precise latitude of 43 degrees, the warmth of the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the "Monte Amiata," the coolness of the wooded areas, the breeze and the moderate rainfall all coincide to facilitate the growth of these grapes to fragrant, full maturity. Valdicava is located in the Montosoli area which is famous in Montelcino for creating wines with great balance of body and aromas. We pay the utmost attention towards maintaining the individual characteristics of our wine in order to exalt the spirit of the place, the 'genius loci' of our estate.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
