Rosso Di Montalcino Wine

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

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A very unusual nose, both bitter and herbal as well as creamy and buttery. Coffee, licorice and brewed tea come to the fore with air. Smooth in the mouth with black spiced berry fruit that is tight but simple. Shows pretty good length but nothing standouts. Pleasant and ordinary. 85pts Read More

  • Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Rather sweet on the nose, and toasty with simple sweet fruit layered over some vanilla and topped with floral nuance. Surprisingly cool and compact on entry with great acids and polished tannins lending this a smooth fee. Today it's just a touch short and shows a hint of heat but there's plenty of chewy fruit here helping to buffer the palate. T... Read More
