Valdicava’s Riveting, Ripe 2018 Rosso di Montalcino!
January 14, 2020
A Note from Sergio

Located in Montosoli, Valdicava sits in the north of the Montalcino subzone. Here, you see that the elevated hills of the central Brunello zone begin to flatten out, forming a kind of plane. This region lends a distinct profile to Brunello--the wines are riper yet structured, elegant yet powerful, and aromatic yet often savory. These traits come from the microclimate; the northern zone gets less of the warm, dry Mediterranean climate and is visited less by cooling winds. These slight differences in temperature, humidity, and elevation make for very interesting Brunello wines.

However remarkable Montosoli may be, Valdicava's microclimate magic doesn't begin and end with its Brunello, and you can't ignore Valdicava's outstanding Rosso di Montalcino. Today, I'm excited to announce that Valdicava's mesmerizing, elegant 2018 Rosso di Montalcino will be arriving very soon! 2018 was a hot, fussy growing year in Montalcino, but cooler winds prevailed in Montosoli, and Valdicava's '18 Rosso di Montalcino reaches out and pulls you in with open arms. It embraces you with power and grace, and it hugs you well into its energetic, lush finish. This is a lithe, lovely wine that you'll want to enjoy again and again. Grab some bottles from our first allocation (while you still can).

While 2018 was a steamy, challenging year in Montalcino, Valdicava created a round, plush, and structured Rosso di Montalcino that combines fleshy fruits with freshness, conveyed on a structure that invites aging. Dark, dusty cherries mingle with warm earth, fresh wildflowers, minerals and pipe tobacco in this fresh yet ample wine. Showing an elegant structure and a lingering, complex finish, this ’18 Rosso is a true “baby Brunello.” The biodynamically grown Sangiovese Grosso grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for 12 to 15 months in cask before bottling. Valdicava’s Rosso di Montalcino is a “baby Brunello” in any year, allowing Brunello enthusiasts to experience the beauty of Valdicava at a fraction of the cost of the estate’s Brunello. more info
