Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Rosso di Montalcino is a lush, fruity wine with good body and an attractive personality. The Rosso is aged predominantly in 100-hectoliter barrels, although 30% of the wine is aged in French oak tonneaux. Over the last few years the estate has moved towards a simpler style of Rosso, which is a shame as the older Rossi were wines of real pedigree and class. This is simply a tasty, well-made wine, but not more. Count me among the estate’s fans who miss the more serious style of Rosso that was common here until just a few years ago. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

Wine SpectatorA rich, chewy style, in a rustic sense, sporting plum, licorice and tobacco notes. Turns dry on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2015. 5,000 cases imported.
