Rosso di Montalcino
Long-considered to be the little brother of Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is, in fact, a wine of great distinction and depth where the distinguishing fruity black cherry and wild berries unite with light sensations of vanilla and spice. First courses with meat sauces, grilled dishes, roasts and medium-aged cheeses bring out the best in its deep and balanced flavor.
