Dievole - Podere Brizio Rosso di Montalcino - 2014
Rosso di Montalcino from vineyards located in the southwest of Montalcino at an altitude of 300-350 meters above sea level facing the sea and the Maremma. This is Montalcino’s hottest area. Here the soil consists of sandstone and rocky marl, which allows the production of wellstructured, mineral wines.
Rosso di Montalcino 2016 is fruity, fresh and elegant. Traditionally vinified with spontaneous fermentation driven by native yeasts in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged for 12 months in untoasted 54hl French oak barrels. Bottle refinement for 3 months minimum. Floral aromas with nuances of ribes and red forest fruit. Well balanced and fresh in the mouth with perfect inherent acidity that pairs with the well-developed tannins. Persistent, all-round finish.
