Rosso di Montalcino Voliero 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"In 2006 Andrea Cortonesi of Uccelliera started a new project, together with other producers of the area friends of his, with the aim of enhancing the different aspects of the extraordinary terroir of Montalcino, and a Rosso and a Brunello are bottled under the brand-name of “Voliero.”Their Rosso is 100% Sangiovese from 15-25 year old vines grown in clay soils. Cold maceration with the skins at 10-12 degrees Celsius (the number of days depends on the characteristics of the grapes). Fermentation in steel with temperature control for 18/20 days. The wine matures in large Slavonian and French oak casks (20/50 hectolitres) for 10 months. Elegant and refined with alluring red and black fruits, flowers and mocha in the nose and mouth, this Rosso di Montalcino is made from the younger Brunello vines. It will make a perfect accompaniment to pork dishes, especially with rosemary accents, grilled tuna, pasta pomodoro or bolognese, and/or with fine Italian cheeses." Importer Site
