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:





What is Chicken St. Timothy?
Large cubes of chicken breast that are dipped in egg wash and then drenched in flour. Then saute the chicken with sliced mushrooms in a stick of butter. Once the flour absorbs the butter, add plenty of Chardonnay, and diced scallions. Finish off the dish with heavy cream. Serve hot and enjoy! It’s delicious!
