A bright red with raspberry, red berry and stone aromas and flavors. Medium body, light tannins and a fruity, crisp finish. Racy Rosso di Montalcino. Drink now.
Fresh berries with mineral, hint of tar on nose. Young tannins with coffee beans, woody character but gorgeous density. It’s a baby Brunello. Better in 2015.
Round and savory, this medium-bodied Rosso opens with aromas that recall underbrush, tobacco leaf, and cooking spices. The dense palate doles out rich black fruit accented with cinnamon, clove and licorice alongside supple tannins. -K.O. (November 2014)
