Wine Review: Rosso di Montalcino’s are considered baby Brunellos that are softer and juicier than their big brothers. This wine lives up to that description. Here is what I thought. This wine opens with a big sweet cherry pie bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, jammy, and a touch acidic. The cherry pie flavors explode on the mid-palate. This wine has a new world profile that is intense. The finish is quite dry and has noteworthy persistence and length. So as you can see, I liked this wine. I enjoyed it on its own. There are only 1,665 cases of this wine, so call your retailer now. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Clinking Glasses Before Tasting Wine: Originates from medieval times. Milk was often spoiled, water was often polluted. Wine was usually safe. The host would drink the wine first and then clink glasses with guests to show the wine was good and safe for drinking.
