Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2009
External Reviews for Rosso di Montalcino DOC
Banditella Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2006 - 88 Points, Wine Advocate/ ...The 2006 Rosso di Montalcino Banditella is a pretty, mid-weight offering laced with perfumed dark red fruit, smoke and tar. The wine reveals excellent length and fine overall balance if not quite the stuffing of the very finest Rossos in this vintage...Col d'Orcia, one of Montalcino's historic properties, is located in Sant'Angelo in Colle in the southern part of the appellation.
Banditella Rosso di Montalcino 2009 - 90 points, Wine Advocate/ Flows across the palate with layers of dark red fruit, spices and French oak. The 2009 emphasizes fruit and volume from the oak in a racy style meant for drinking upon release. The Banditella is a selection made exclusively from Brunello-designated vineyards.
Banditella 2010 - Restaurant Wine - 5 Stars/ Wonderful single vineyard Rosso: ripely flavored, full bodied, moderately rich, and long on the finish, with modest tannin. It tastes of ripe fruit (red currant, blackberry, cherry) and oak (toast, caramel), with floral, peppery overtones. Aged 12+ months in French oak barrels and casks.
Banditella Rosso di Montalcino 2007 - 91+ Points, International Wine Cellar/ Medium-deep ruby. Intense nose offers black cherry, medicinal herbs, quinine and pepper; the aromas are much warmer than those of the '06 but avoid coming off as overripe or cooked. Then pure and fresh on entry, with laser-like precision to the red cherry, raspberry jam and spicy tobacco flavors. Finishes quite long and pure, managing to avoid jamminess, with very fine but still youthful tannins in need of time. This could easily develop in bottle for seven to ten years. A Brunello in all but name, this Rosso is made from one specific hectare of the seven-hectare Banditella vineyard, most of which is used for the estate's base Brunello.
Banditella Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2007 - 87-89 Points, Wine Advocate/ ... an intense, deep wine with an expansive core of dark fruit. The generous quality of the vintage is on full display in this big Rosso... Proprietor Francesco Marone Cinzano makes powerful wines imbued with notable pedigree from his extensive holdings in the southern reaches of Montalcino.
Buying Guide/ Taken from a single vineyard planted to new clonal selections, the 2000 Banditella presents darker, more oak-influenced flavors than its younger sibling. Black cherry and vanilla notes are accented by hints of earth, tobacco and cedar. Tannins are supple; acids are tart, finishing crisply.
/ A full bodied, ripely flavored, fairly rich Rosso, with evident new oak character; internationally styled. It has plum, black cherry, spicy oak, and toast aromas/flavors. Long aftertaste.
