Rosso di Montalcino


Rosso is a new appelation for red wine from Brunello grapes of Montalcino, which is not aged as long as Brunello. Usually lacking the austere, tannic complexity of aged Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino makes excellent drinking at a lower cost and its alternative appelation as a DOC that gives growers the option of using, from the same Brunello vineyards, the lesser qualified grapes (younger vines or less ripened clusters) so as to select the superior grapes for the wines to be aged as Brunello, while declaring the rest as Rosso di Montalcino. It has a deep color, is concentrated and rich, opening to layers of spicey berry aromas and flavors, with an excellent balance and finish. A compliment to pasta dishes, red meats or game. Serve at room temperature.
