Red berries, dried herbs, cedar and spices. Medium-bodied with some good concentration for a Rosso and showing plenty of red berries to the core and tangy acidity to boot. Drink now.

Review:
The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino takes a bit of coaxing to come to life; but once it does, it more than makes up for the wait. Here I’m finding mineral-tinged blackberries and cherries, gaining lift, as dusty florals and a hint of spiced citrus come forward. It’s silky-smooth and pliant, showing the richness of the vintage, while coasting polished red/black fruits across a spine of energizing acidity, as the slightest hint of residual tannin frames the expression perfectly. Purple florals and licorice linger on the lightly structured finish, giving the impression that the 2017 has a number of years left to shine.
