Rosso di Montalcino 2021

Tasting Notes

The structure is that of a younger wine; simple and fresh with hints fruit on the nose. The fruity notes carry over to the palate making for an elegantly delicious wine.

Food Pairing

Great with grilled or roasted meats, pasta dishes, cold cuts and medium-aged cheeses.

Tech Details

The vineyards are located on the South-East facing side of Montalcino, overlooking Val d'Orcia. Protected from the sea breezes coming in from the west. This well-ventilated area guarantees an optimal microclimate, without humidity stagnation and wetness during the growing season and natural protection from the main vine diseases (botrytis and downy mildew). The grapes are picked by hand during the end of September and early October. Dry & stony soils mostly composed of "galestro" pure marl, small areas of limestone and sand with layers of skeleton and rocks. Vinification in steel vats of 30/40hl, spontaneous fermentation without adding yeasts, maceration lasts approximately 20-22 days at a controlled temperature of 84°F. Aged 12-15 months in 20/25hl oak casks. Refined in bottle for 3 months prior to release.
