Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino|
The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino is drop-dead gorgeous, slowly unfolding in the glass; at first smokey and herbal, yet gaining depths of dark red fruits and sweet spice over time. It's silky-smooth in texture, contrasted by savory wild berry, plum and zesty acids, with purple tinged inner florals amassing toward the close. Licorice and hints of black currant linger, along with a coating of round tannins, making for a lightly structured yet still highly enjoyable finale.
The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino is aromatic of cherry lozenge, licorice, and violets. The palate is pure and approachable, with ripe black raspberry, dried strawberry, and sweet herbs. The 2019 is sunny and fresh, with a softer, more rounded feel than the 2018 and great for early drinking. 2021-2025.
Laced with cherry, plum, tobacco and earth flavors, this juicy red starts out plump, ending with ripe, refined tannins and a hint of lavender. Balanced and long, this is enjoyable now, but will drink well over the next 2-3 years. Drink now through 2024. 1,800 cases made, 1,100 cases imported.
