Rosso di Montalcino DOC

label image label image

Tasting Notes

Rosso di Montalcino is made with the same grapes as Brunello (100% Sangiovese) and a similar vinification but the ageing is shorter (1 year in oak casks), so the structure is that of a younger wine, simple, elegant and fresh with lots of fruit on the nose which continues through to the palate.

Palazzo Rosso di Montalcino is an extremely enjoyable wine that is suitable for any kind of dish, grilled or roasted meats, pasta dishes, cold cuts and medium-aged cheeses.
