Sweet cherries and dried herbs with an earthy undertone.
The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino is a beautiful expression of high-elevation Sangiovese fruit, showing peppery herbs and florals before evolving to display bright cherry, plus hints of leather strap and underlying earth. It's generous on the palate, the pliant textures giving way to ripe cherry and sweet spices, as saline mineral add a grounding effect to this otherwise seductive expression. The finish is long yet vibrant, pulsing with mouthwatering acidity and zesty red fruits, as a hint of fine tannin tug at the cheek. The 2017 is ready to please, with just enough grip to elevate it above your average Rosso.
