Baricci Rosso di Montalcino 2020
The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino lifts up with a dark and layered bouquet of dusty roses and smoky minerals, giving way to blackberry, plum and exotic spice. It's silky and pliant in feel, with depths of ripe red and black fruits offset by cooling mineral tones, while turning more savory and floral toward the close. Round tannins coat the senses under a display of violet florals and lavender. This is a Rosso that dreams of being a Brunello; cellar it for another year or two, and reap the rewards.
A taut, burly style, whose firm tannins put a strong grip on the cherry and berry flavors. Old school, with flashes of iron, earth and tobacco. Drink now through 2024. 1,500 cases made, 100 cases imported.
