This is very fine-toned and formed for a rosso di montalcino with a bitter-orange note to the cherry character. Some black chocolate, too. Medium to full body, fine tannins and ripe fruit at the finish. Drink now.

The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino opens to a medium garnet color with bright ruby highlights. The wine offers a nicely balanced bouquet that carefully considers the intensity of its aromas and the elegance of its various components. Forest berry, wild cherry and pressed violets all appear here in a clear and distinctive manner. The mouthfeel is lean, easy and not particularly complex. This is a precise and accessible expression of Sangiovese that should pair next to fried chicken or codfish. Some 10,000 bottles were made.
