Tasting Notes

An enveloping bouquet of sweet cherries with hints of lavender and savoury spice, is followed by a deliciously supple palate bursting with juicy, red cherry and wild spice characters, with delicate notes of strawberries and raspberries. This is a deliciously pure and very complex wine which will be perfect for drinking over the next five or so years. Drink 2013 ? 2018.

Reviews & Scores

The 2011 Rosso di Montalcino wraps around the palate with sensual dark red fruit, spices, vanillin and dried flowers.

I tasted the 2011 from tank just prior to its bottling.

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...
