Production

Harvested at the beginning of October, grapes undergo soft pressing, fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats at 25°-28°and extraction of the noble compounds from the skins with the help of periodic pumping-over. Maceration on the skins lasts from 15 to 18 days. Rosso di Montalcino ages for 6 to 7 months in big Slavonian oak barrels with periodic racking and for a few months in the bottle before being released.

Tasting Notes

Red tending towards amaranth, good depth, bright on the rim. Very elegant, mature and convincing bouquet with varietal notes of tealeaves and bay leaf. Mature grassy attributes prevail, made more complex by the light ageing in big French oak barrels. Fresh decisive start with good acidity and good aromatic return. The great structure succeeds in sustaining the compact tannins of Sangiovese di Montalcino.

Food Pairing

Its elevated structure makes this wine excellent for game dishes and aged cheeses.

Ageing Potential

Rosso di Montalcino fully expresses its youthful aromatic and gustative characteristics within the first year after being released on the market thanks to the sharp fruity notes and body whose structure merits early-drinking.
