Rosso di Montalcino

Rosso di Montalcinodoc

PRODUCTION AREA: Southeast side of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Montalcino (SI)

VINIFICATION: The grapes are harvested by carefull hand-picking selecting them for quality and exposition; fermentation and maceration take place in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days at controlled temperature (24-26°C) with daily pumping over and delastage; following the racking, wines are immediately transferred into French oak barrels and large casks of Slavonian oak where it will remain for about nine months; after that wine will be transferred to steel where it will remain until bottling.

TASTING NOTES:

Full-body, balanced and slightly tannic, good persistence. To serve at 18°C in medium-sized glasses. Excellent with pasta dishes served with red meat sauces and second courses of red meats and grilled or roasted white meat and poultry.

Maturing capacity in bottle:
