The Poggio di Sotto Rosso di Montalcino is a superb showing in 2011, offering seductive aromas of blackberries, ripe plum, dried tobacco, leather, sweet spices, floral and hints of white truffle which build in the glass. This stunning Rosso continues to dazzle with its wonderful balance and finesse as it makes a seamless transition onto the long, silky finish. There should be no issues cellaring this for a decade, however this already has so much to offer and is extremely open and accessible. The grapes selection for the Rosso are the exact same as for the Brunello, the only difference in the two are the vinification and aging process. This is a world-class Rosso and should not be missed. — 16 days ago
Tart and bubbly light red perfect chilled on the beach — 10 days ago
Light but balanced and flavorful. Just earthy & spicy enough to support beef, but drinks smoothly enough to drink on its own, despite 14%.
Z says 9.0 - 9.1 and really likes that it's organic.
Rob says 8.9 - 9.0

Brings back fond memories of tasting at this winery. Good fruit flavors. Low acidity. — 10 days ago
Lots of layers to this. Brick red color. Starts with aromas of petrol, flavors of blackberry and briar. Then moves to cherry, tobacco, licorice with lavender aromas. Towards the end I get blueberry. Like having three separate wines over a course of less than 2 hours. Medium body and tannins, with plenty of acidity. Worked very well with red sauce lasagna. Decent with a lamb chop and portobello ravioli. — 25 days ago
