Wine Review: This bright red colored Rosso di Montalcino opens with a mild red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and round. The flavor profile is a mild cherry with notes of gentle oak. I also detected a hint of strawberry licorice. The finish is dry and its very mild tannins are friendly. While this Rosso is not the most complex wine, it is very versatile and food friendly. I would pair it with your favorite pizza or burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a wine that is full and structured, with a hint of blackberry and raspberry, accompanied by coffee and tobacco notes. Wine with a wide and concentrated structure, perfectly balanced by a good acidity. The end has a good persistence on the palate. Ideal pairing with game and medium- aged cheeses.

Organic status: not organic
