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 SpectatorScents of iron and tar lead off, featuring flavors of cherry, licorice, leather and earth. Vibrant and solidly built, with a lingering echo of cherry and earth. Drink now through 2024. 2,335 cases made, 700 cases imported.
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.
