Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Sour cherries, brambly berries, warm loam, new leather, underbrush and crushed herbs mingle with smoky minerals and milk chocolate in this expressive, balanced ’16 Rosso di Montalcino. Deriving from a recently leased vineyard sporting white clay soils and located downslope of Cerbaiona’s existing holdings, this Rosso di Montalcino was earmarked as a Brunello, but as it evolved, its makers saw an opportunity to craft a rich, evocative and powerful Rosso di Montalcino. 2016 saw a high quality, low production harvest of ripe, aromatic and balanced grapes, and this wine reflects its superb vintage in its elegant tannins, juicy fruits, vivid acidity and sustained, pure finish. A blend of organically grown grapes, this Rosso spends about 18 months in barrel before bottling (regulations require that Brunello spends two years in barrel, making this wine akin to Montalcino’s more famous sibling).
