Rosso di Montalcino is made following the same procedures as for Brunello from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes from the same vineyards. The difference is that the Rosso isn't aged as long. Its color is a bright and clear deep ruby red. The bouquet is intense, fresh and fragrant of fruits and berries. The flavor is dry and full with notable persistence on the palate. Though it can age well, it is ready to drink on release.

Very pretty bright red color. Intense violet, black cherry and licorice on the nose. Then similar flavors in the mouth, with a balsamic note lingering nicely on the youthfully chewy, persistent and strongly spicy (cloves, especially) finish. Interestingly, this enters herbal and develops more and more fruit as it sits in the glass. 70% Sangiovese grown around Le Chiuse's winery and 30% Sangiovese from the Pullera plot near the Biondi-Santi winery. Aged 14 months of used 20-30hL Slavonian oak.
