Sangiovese, Drinking Now 2020
The 2014 Rosso di Montalcino is one of the better Rossos of the vintage. Dark, pliant and expressive, the 2014 offers notable depth, with plenty of dark red cherry, plum, mocha and spice notes. This is a commendable effort from Giancarlo Pacenti, and one of the rare overachievers of the vintage. In 2014, Pacenti declassified a significant portion of his Brunello down to the Rosso, and that was after losing 50% of the total crop to bad weather.
