100% Sangiovese from clay and sand soils rich in minerals. This wine is made from younger Brunello di Montalcino vineyards or from vineyards that, depending on the vintage, produce grapes with a fresh character.
"Luminous dark red. Lively aromas of redcurrant, red licorice, and mint, plus complicating nuances of balsamic oils and violet. Juicy, spicy flavors of red berries and cherries are very deep and pure. In a cooler, low-fat style than usual for this wine, with harmonious acidity nicely extending the flavors on the long juicy and perfumed back end. A declassified Brunello, this is a really outstanding Rosso di Montalcino.” - 93 Points – Ian D’Agata, www.vinous.com
