Medium-deep ruby. Deep, expressive aromas of black cherry, raspberry, sweet spices and balsamic vinegar. Then sweet, broad and rich, combining very ripe red and black fruits with a healthy dollop of sweet chocolatey oak and a hint of coffee liqueur. The long finish features velvety tannins and a balsamic edge as well as a lingering sweet black cherry flavor. On a past visit to this estate, owner Giacomo Neri told me he thinks Rosso di Montalcino must be a wine made from sangiovese and to be drunk young. "In my view," he added, "it's a mistake to try to turn it into a small Brunello." He makes quite a bit of Rosso, as ten hectares of vines are devoted entirely to Rosso, but the total amount of Rosso di Montalcino he offers each year also contains a good proportion of declassified Brunello.

An elegant, reserved red, with berry, mineral and sous-bois character. Medium-bodied, with very fine tannins and a medium, fresh finish. Nicely done. Drink now through 2004.

The 2000 Rosso di Montalcino is an attractive, well-made, straightforward effort with good elegance, some flesh, and a cedary, tobacco, red currant, and cherry-scented nose. It requires consumption over the next 1-2 years.
