Aromas of red berry, tobacco and Mediterranean scrub lead the nose. It's juicy and balanced, offering fleshy red cherry, licorice and black pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. It's fresh, with bright acidity. Drink through 2025.

Review:
The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is very pretty, understated and very delicious. Readers will find an soft-spoken Rosso that is all about persistence, delicacy and class. The 2016 is not an obvious wine, but it is compelling. Sweet floral and red cherry notes perk up the brilliant finish in this light to medium-bodied Rosso from Scopetone.
