Palate Profile

Unlike many Rosso di Montalcino (often comprising inferior barrels of Brunello) this is a site-specific bottling treated every step along the way with all the love and care of winemaker Riccardo Campinoti 's Brunello offerings.

The vineyard is situated in Castelnuovo dell’Abate on a steep hillside with Mastrojanni’s Vigna Schiena d’Asino on one side and Poggio di Sotto on the other. The grapes are handpicked and gently crushed, juice on skins for 40 days while undergoing a long, cool fermentation in concrete. It is then racked to large Slavonian botti where it rests quietly on gross lees for 24 months. This Rosso comprises ”Brunello designated fruit ‘that is a touch more open and expressive so it can be enjoyed younger.

Pale cherry red in colour with a concentrated yet pure bouquet of red and black cherry fruit with notes of spice and minerality. What a fine  sangiovese offering ! Fragrance,  richly textural palate with density of fruit, detail fine elegant, ripe tannins and a long dry finish.

Critic Awards

A subtle, linear red with cherry, blackberry and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with a very tight, compact palate. Flavourful and linear finish

Vibrant red. Multilayered aromas and flavors of bright red cherry, raspberry, sweet spices and marzipan. Luscious yet lively on the precise long finish. This is superb.
