Don't think of Rossi di Montalcino as inferior to Brunello, Elisa Sesti told me, but as a younger wine that "heralds the new vintage." It's a wonderful way of thinking of this young, fresh, fruity, but complex and layered wine.

Dust-laced rose & violet petals. Sour cherry mixed with garrigue.

Pretty shy tonight, maybe too you as the fruit was the entire show, structure was on the soft side. Expected more structure and terroir driven wine...had the 2010 Rosso last year and it was excellent...going to wait on the other bottles.

Actual Brunello, looks, smells and finishes like a Brunello. Traditional, terroir & varietal driven. #FWC

Solid Rosso di Montalcino. Earthy and tannic. Rustic in the best sense of the word.
