Rosso di Montalcino, Scopetone

In Montalcino Scopetone only has vineyards classified to produce Brunello di Montalcino, so their rosso is, of course, declassified Brunello. A miniscule production, just 325 cases are produced each year from a half hectare of vines in the Scarnacuoia cru—a location of notable history in Montalcino because it’s where the Biondi Santi family planted their very first monovarietal vineyard of Sangiovese! Fermentation and maceration lasts 15 days in stainless steel, and then the wine is aged 6 months in large Slavonian oak casks followed by 3 months in bottle.
