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.
