Very intense and brilliant ruby red color. Aroma's are fine, rich, well expressed, recalls ripe small red berries, spices and dark flowers such as violets. The taste is full, harmonious, pleasant, the tannins are silky and well balanced by the richness in fruit. The persistence is pleasant and lengthy. This is a perfect wine for the table and is very versatile, apt for important first courses, roasts, tasty cheeses and cold cuts. The harmonious and graceful power of this wine requires food that is intense in taste but not too fatty or greasy.

Wine EnthusiastTilled earth, fragrant purple-flower, wild-berry and crushed herb aromas lead the nose on this lithe, savory red. The elegant, accessible palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry and ground clove alongside polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Enjoy through 2021.

Wine AdvocateHere's a terrific Tuscan red to pair with your favorite pasta dish or with wood oven pizza with long threads of melted mozzarella. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is an ideal food wine thanks to the brightness of the acidity that will cut straight through cheese or fatty ingredients to keep your palate refreshed. Easy berry tones add life and sparkle to the mouthfeel. The wine is direct and fresh. Some 35,000 bottles were made.
