Wine Review: This bright red colored Rosso di Montalcino opens with a fragrant and appealing strawberry bouquet with a hint of Maraschino cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is an old oak influenced Maraschino cherry with hints of fine minerality and strawberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well with your favorite meat lasagna recipe. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet: Intense, fresh, and fruity with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, and plum. Taste: Gentle, full and soft, with surprising length. Pair with wild game and aged cheeses.
