The Poggio Il Castellare vineyards are located in the hamlet of Castelnuovo Abate, next to the spectacular panorama of the Abbey of Saint Antimo. The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino is an energetic bright, forward fruit gem of a wine with a superb balance and texture. This is what Rosso di Montalciono is all about.
Brunello's Greatness, at a Fraction of the Cost!
For a casual, weeknight wine, we can think of nothing better than a Rosso di Montalcino. Think of it as the light-hearted, younger sibling to brooding Brunello. It comes from the same sundrenched vineyards of Tuscany but has less ageing requirements than Brunello. The result is an utterly charming, medium-bodied wine loaded with intense red cherry and blackberry fruit, clove, spice and pipe tobacco. Fruit-forward and energetic, it is extremely versatile and shines brightest when paired with food. We love it with a very slight chill and a charcuterie and cheese platter.
