Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbour, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king in Montalcino!
Winemaker Notes ... Vivid ruby-red colour with aromas of red berries, red currants, cherries and notes of eucalyptus. The palate is fresh with soft tannins, medium body, bright acidity and a long finish with slight menthol notes. It is the perfect complement for roasted and grilled meat (both beef and white meat), cheeses and casserole dishes.
95 Points James Suckling ... "Aromas of plums, cherries, flowers and sandalwood follow through to a full body with chewy, polished tannins and a long, flavourful finish. Lots of structure and intensity. Give it at least three or four years to come around. Try after 2025."
