Rosso di Montalcino 2014
We made this Rosso di Montalcino from our vineyards located in the southwest of Montalcino at an altitude of 300-350 meters above sea level facing the sea and the Maremma. This is Montalcino’s hottest area. Here the soil consists of sandstone and rocky marl, which allows the production of well-structured, mineral wines.
Rosso di Montalcino 2014 is fruity, fresh and elegant. Traditionally vinified with spontaneous fermentation driven by native yeasts, the wine is refined for 12 months in natural 54Hl French oak casks. Bottle refinement for 3 months minimum. Floral aromas with nuances of ripe red fruit. Well balanced and fresh in the mouth with perfect inherent acidity that pairs with the well-developed tannins. Persistent, all-round finish.
Superb with pasta dishes, salami, prosciutto and meat.
