The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino takes its time opening in the glass, yet is worth the wait, as a smoky mix of balsam, rosemary, crushed rocks, dried black cherries and mint nuances form its dark bouquet. This is soft in texture and savory within, with brisk acids maintaining a lovely balance and pretty nuances of strawberry and spice that fill the senses. The 2020 tapers off with subtle tannins and medium length as rosy florals slowly fade. (Eric Guido, Vinous, October 2022)

A damn fine wine. Leather, earth, and dried red fruit. All the grip I want but still easily quaffable. Perfect for a steak or a red sauce with spicy pork sausage.

Not the most aromatic of wines. Songs of leather, aged balsamic, dried cherries and cranberry, dried fennel and a general earthiness. Tannins are soft and powdery, with a fresh cherry like acidity. Length could be better. Not bad.

Super expressive complex Rosso. Leathery dirty cherries, anise, sweet mushroom and tomato leaf earthiness.
