Rosso di Montalcino
DOC

14.90

It comes from the high vineyards of Podere Casisano in the hills to the south-east of Montalcino and offers the charm of an immediately appealing style, combined with good structure and the fragrant fruit that is typical of Sangiovese.

Vibrant, fresh and easy-drinking Rosso di Montalcino is often interpreted as inferior to its big brother Brunello. We see it as equally pleasurable and delicious in the context of an everyday wine.

Description

Vibrant, fresh and easy-drinking Rosso di Montalcino is often interpreted as inferior to its big brother Brunello. We see it as equally pleasurable and delicious in the context of an everyday wine. Casisano Rosso di Montalcino comes from younger vines that were replanted when we recuperated abandoned vineyards back in 2015. Shorter aging limits the potential to evolve in complexity, but it allows us to enjoy the qualities of the vintage without the mouth puckering tannin and concentration of a young Brunello.

Information


Tasting Note

Deep ruby red, but nicely transparent. It has a complex bouquet that is reminiscent of violets, plums and red berry fruits, combined with delicate spicy hints. It is dry on the palate, with an attractive balance between its tannins and acidity. The finish is fresh and persistent.


Serving Suggestions

Its freshness and good structure make it very versatile. Excellent with pasta or rice dishes with meat sauces, grilled red meats, Italian cold cuts and cheeses.
