About

90+

"Talenti's 2017 Rosso di Montalcino avoids some of the over-ripeness you get in wines from this sunny and hot vintage. A careful approach has been implemented to draw out more of the complexity and depth you get with Sangiovese grown in the celebrated Montalcino appellation. This Rosso is tight and compact with enough inner energy and versatility to pair with your favorite Italian pasta dishes. The wine has the tannins to stand up to hearty foods. Some 22,000 bottles were made. This is a terrific Rosso that I am happy to recommend."

Product Description:

"The Brunello’s younger brother - Rosso di Montalcino, a wine with the same characteristics, made with the same grape variety, the Sangiovese, but coming from younger vineyards. Rosso di Montalcino has a vibrant colour, is very soft and pleasant, with a neat and clean aroma of mature red fruit. A wine with a good body and structure, warm, tasty and persistent.

Ruby red and intense colour with violet shimmers. Intense, fresh and fruity scent with the varietals notes of cherry, plums and black cherry. Soft and mineral taste with a good structure and well-balanced tannins." - Winery
