Rosso Di Montalcino Wine

for this region?


Rosso di Montalcino is produced in the same defined zone as Brunello di Montalcino, around the town of the same name in Tuscany, Italy. The DOC was put in place in 1984 order to expedite production from younger vines and plantings, with less aging requirement than Brunello. Rosso only has to age 6 months in oak, while Brunello requires a minimum 2 years in oak, 4 years total. This gives wine-makers the ability to earn some cash as they wait for their higher prestige wines to mature. 
Like Brunello, Rosso must be produced from 100% Sangiovese Grosso. But it’s a fresher, lighter style, though still structured with Sangiovese characteristics. 
For more information on the history and production of the region, please see Montalcino

Of course a big claret from either Right or Left Bank, and a C9dP or Syrah, too. Rioja calling. Want balance and not too much oak, as always, though some OK. Grilling them over wood? Depending on how you sauce ... Read More

    A rather mellow RdM from the start. Blackberries, plum, spice, Montalcino dirt and a sprig of zest lead to the palate which sees the same with additional herbal notes, medium tannins and good acidity. Drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

  • Caparzo Rosso di Montalcino 2013


    Binny's 3/2016. I believe it to be the "jury is still out" bottle of wine. I had one sniff, and a mouthful. I wish that was enough for me to form an opinion, but sadly, I am not that worldly of an oenophile. However, Mary said it was "OK, I drank it didn't I". Looks like we will have to revisit Montalcino.
