When it is also the little brother of the Brunello, it very confidently entices and seduces from the first to the last sip. Pure elegance with Burgundian finesse. Notes of black cherry, cedar wood and bitter cherry dominate. The tannins are fine and dry and adorn the fruit like a silk cloth. Has great freshness but also a pleasant pressure in the after-taste, with notes of dark chocolate and blackberries. A great, «little» wine - none better than a Rosso di Montalcino.

It has been too long since I last tasted the Rosso made by Poggio di Sotto, so I was very happy to include this sample in my flight. The 2015 Rosso di Montalcino opens to a mild garnet color and light appearance. The bouquet is very polished and precise. It offers clean aromas of wild berry and rose hip with some bitter almond and blue violets. To me, this wine delivers on all the expectations of this lower-tier category. The wine imparts beautiful Sangiovese purity with a bright, streamlined and informal personality. This is a lovely, lovely Rosso.

Supple yet intense, featuring macerated cherry, strawberry, rose and mineral aromas and flavors. Shows a saline element that expands as this lingers. Stays fresh and firm, yet balanced. Drink now through 2023. 900 cases made, 130 cases imported.
