Tasting note Rosso di Montalcino
Garnet red wine with a complex scent of ripe red fruit (cherry, raspberry) supplemented with spices (cloves, vanilla). The taste is pure, full and medium intense with fresh acids and fine, spicy tannin in the long finish.
Castello di Romitorio is not only an impressive 12th-century fortress that towers over the hills of Montalcino, it is also one of the leading Brunello domains in the region. The castello is in the hands of the artist Sandro Chia. He bought up the derelict estate in the 1980s and decided to restore not only the building but also the vineyards.
At that time, Sandro was looking at the location choice of Sandro, namely the cooler, north-western part of the region. Now it appears that he made an extremely smart choice at the time. Many wines from this exclusive Tuscan region nowadays suffer from high alcohol percentages due to the warm climate.
Romitorio wines, on the other hand, are always strikingly elegant and drinkable. That also applies to the Rosso, sometimes affectionately called Brunello's little brother. Like Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is also made from 100% sangiovese.
The ripening time of Rosso is only much shorter, making the wine more accessible and faster to drink. This beautiful, classic Italian with its ripe tannins is an excellent food wine. For example, drink it in combination with roasted meat, hearty pasta or polenta dishes.
Refined, oak-aged red wine with a medium-intense flavor structure that combines beautifully with spicy pastas and spicy casseroles.
