Mastrojanni Rosso di Montalcino 2018

2018 Rosso di Montalcino DOC 750ml

Description

In 1984, the Rosso di Montalcino DOC was established to allow winemakers to offer a product in between the lengthy ageing periods necessary for the region’s flagship wine, Brunello di Montalcino.
 
The wine is still made from the same grape, Sangiovese Grosso, grown in the same zone, however it is given significantly less ageing time in oak and in bottle prior to release.
 
Declassified Brunello can also find its way into Rosso di Montalcino wines and they tend to be lighter, fresher and more approachable at an earlier stage.
 
92 POINTS, Ian D'Agata, Vinous: Bright deep red. Sour red cherry and red berries dominate the nose and the mouth, accented by mineral strokes. This is taut and energetic, with a core of bright red fruit and flowers, supported by firm tannins that provide traction and impart length on the very floral, saline finish. A truly excellent, focused and very refreshing red that will pair wonderfully across a range of dishes from pasta to burgers to grilled meat and aged cheese. It’s also a classic example of a Rosso di Montalcino made from vineyards not allowed to be used to make Brunello, with a telltale leaner, more nervous, almost metallic personality compared to other much creamier Rossos made from Sangiovese vineyards that can be used to make Brunello (and which are essentially declassified Brunellos).
