Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% The "Baby Brunello". Juicy and elegant, you can\'t go wrong with 100% sangiovese grapes.
Rosso di Montalcino is undoubtedly one of Italy’s true wine success stories of the last decade, an aromatic beauty, a wine that shimmers with vitality and approachability. Just like Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is the product of 100% sangiovese grapes grown in the Montalcino territory, but it goes through a much shorter period of élévage than its Brunello brother. The sangiovese, in all its Tuscan manifestations, make a great bottle on any table, richer and more concentrated that those grown in the Chianti zones. Denser and more powerful; combining muscularity with elegance. Succulent, juicy fruit, fresh, with a slight acidity and gorgeous tannins.
Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% One of the most famous Italian red wines in the world, from one of the three highest vineyards in Montalcino.
70 miles south of Florence lies Montalcino, home of one of the world’s great wines: Brunello di Montalcino. Their vineyards are among the three highest in Montalcino, reaching 1,663 feet above sea level, providing advantageous conditions for growing fuller, powerful wines with crisp acidity. These conditions, and the territory-wide commitment to quality, have brought Brunello di Montalcino to the attention of the world. Flavourful tannins with aromas of fresh berries, blood oranges and graphite, it has complex structure full of fruity spicy sensations, ending with a finish that plays between the savouriness and the acidity. As its fruit often reaches maximum ripening, Brunello di Montalcino has a bright garnet colour. Brunello di montalcino is a big, robust red: hearty and rich, it tastes like it was made for hunters who eat wild boar stew that was made on an open fire. But if you fancy something a little less rustic, you\'ll be pleased to know that the elegance and the harmonious body of this wine means it also pairs well with dishes such as red meats, game, mushrooms and truffles. Brunello di Montalcino earned the prestigious DOCG status for stringent quality-control guidelines in 1980, which includes being aged for a minimum of two years in barrels and two more in bottles before being sold.
