Notes from the Winemaker:
Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, yet soft, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins.

Food Pairings: Pasta with meat sauce, roasted, grilled meats and medium strength cheeses.

Younger, more accessible version of the Brunello, but already with an excellent structure and a great personality, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione.

Produced entirely from Sangiovese grapes, sourced in the estate's younger vineyards, Rosso di Montalcino is aged for 12 months in large casks before a period of bottle aging.

The wood aging, although not obligatory for the production of Rosso di Montalcino, tones down the tannins typical of a young Sangiovese and gives this red wine a complexity of aroma and structure that make it a great "Young Brunello".

Vinification:
15 days "submerged cap" fermentation in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts at a controlled temperature 25/28 °C (77/82 F). Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel.

Aging:
12 months in large French oak barrels (30 - 50 hl or 872 -1373 Gallon) and barriques (350 litres - 92 Gallon) followed by bottle aging.


Ratings & Reviews
91 Points #46 Top 100 of 2017 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Bright, delicate and vibrant, with berry and floral flavors. Accents of earth, tobacco and spice add interest as they linger on the finish. Well-rounded and long. Drink now through 2023. 16,666 cases made." – BS (Sep 30, 2017)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A go-to Rosso di Montalcino with dried cherry and orange peel character. Medium body, light tannins and a tangy finish. Shows focus and precision. Drink now and enjoy." - (20 Sep, 2017)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Underbrush, red berry and clove aromas carry over to the linear palate, which is steeped in espresso flavor. While it's already accessible, fine-grained tannins give it a firm structure. Drink through 2020." - Kerin O’Keefe (4/1/2017)
