At San Polo, the grapes for this Rosso di Montalcino are obtained from the same noble parcels as those used for the Brunello, but the requirements for aging and maximum yields are less stringent. Therefore, Rosso di Montalcino wine is more immediately accessible in its youth, whereas Brunello di Montalcino benefits from more aging. More like a 'baby' Brunello, the final wine is flavorful and versatile, with all the quality one expects from this distinguished appellation.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in color, this Rosso di Montalcino offers juicy aromas of blackberries, black cherries and a hint of vanilla. This pleasantly fragrant wine is medium bodied, with well balanced tannins and a persistent, aromatic finish. 

Food Pairing

It is ideal with pasta Bolognese, herb roasted chicken, barbecued ribs or cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano.
