Casisano Rosso di Montalcino 2020
|Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino
The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino is peppery, floral and fresh, with crushed stone and tart wildberries giving way to hints of clove. This is a juicy and pure expression, one that impresses on its zesty personality and sour-versus-sweet mix of red fruits and citrus tones. The finish is gently tannic, while tapering off with hints of plum and purple-tinged inner florals.
The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino embraces red fruit, cherry, lavender essence and some grilled herb. Despite the heat and sunshine of the vintage, this wine delivers balanced results with fresh acidity and a short, compact finish. The wine is thin, but a pizza would do just fine as an informal pairing partner.
This light-bodied red has subdued aromas recalling ripe berry and dried hay with a whiff of damp underbrush. The simple palate suggests dried cherry and the barest hint of baking spice alongside dusty, drying tannins.
