This pure Sangiovese has a medium ruby red colour and is characterized by typical varietal aromas, such as wild cherries and red currant, underlined by a light, balsamic touch. The flavour is round and distinct, with a long, delicately spicy finish.

The Rosso di Montepulciano is the youngest of our Sangiovese trio, which also includes the Vino Nobile and the Grandi Annate. It has been lightly aged in oak and is perfect for pairing with "antipasti", light pasta dishes or poultry. In the summer, it is delicious when served slightly chilled from the ice bucket.


San Francisco International Wine Competition 2015

90/100 points
Cherry and strawberry flavors mesh with woodsy tobacco notes and a dense structure in this version. Just a bit compact on the finish now, but opens with air. Fresh and long on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2023.–BS
