Ratings and Tasting Notes:
AG=92 The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino is drop-dead gorgeous, slowly unfolding in the glass; at first smokey and herbal, yet gaining depths of dark red fruits and sweet spice over time. It’s silky-smooth in texture, contrasted by savoury wild berry, plum and zesty acids, with purple-tinged inner florals amassing toward the close. Liquorice and hints of black currant linger, along with a coating of round tannins, make for a lightly structured yet still highly enjoyable finale.
WS=89 Laced with cherry, plum, tobacco and earth flavours, this juicy red starts out plump, ending with ripe, refined tannins and a hint of lavender. Balanced and long, this is enjoyable now but will drink well over the next 2-3 years. Drink now through 2024.
