Review:
A pretty Rosso di Montalcino that shows dark cherries, spices and dried herbs. Medium body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Drink now.

Review:
The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino impresses with a display of blackberries, cherries and balsamic spices, all lifted up by mentholated herbal tones. It’s creamy in texture and medium in body yet contrasted by tart wild berries, minerals and brisk acids. This becomes almost salty through the finale, along with a subtle coating of fine tannins. The 2017 shows the intensity and warmth of the year, yet it finishes on balance. That said, drink this dark beast of a Rosso sooner rather than later.

Precise and fresh, driven by sweet red fruits with a mineral edge. Pretty wine, with a long and savoury finish.
