Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Ripe cherries and brambly berries, romantic violets and sweet roses, warm baking spices and rich chocolate--this extraordinary ’11 “baby Brunello” from Poggio di Sotto is at once rich and ethereal. Silky, fine-grained tannins, a smooth and gracious mouth-feel, and extraordinary elegance conspire to indicate that Poggio di Sotto, now owned by Claudio Tipa and under the care of winemaker Federico Staderini, is maintaining its genius and style. This Rosso di Montalcino, crafted from grapes declassified from Poggio di Sotto Brunello or grapes from younger vines, has all the muscle, fruit, and tannins of a Brunello, but a slightly lighter, less dense and brooding, disposition. Like Poggio di Sotto's Brunello, the Rosso is vinified with the same meticulous care--in stainless steel and then oak barrique, with no added yeasts. With a cherry, toffee, and coffee nose, and a palate of dark fruits and herbs, this Rosso will surprise even aficionados with its Brunello-like ethereal elegance.
