Description

Poggio di Sotto Rosso di Montalcino DOC

This ‘Baby Brunello’ is one of the best expressions of Sangiovese. Thanks to the unique terroir of Poggio di Sotto, this beautiful Rosso can certainly rival any full-fledged Brunello from some of the best Estates in the appellation.

Brick red colour. Bold aromas of wild raspberry and cassis create a primary fruit intensity, assisted with notes of dried berries and herbs. The palate has an attractive concentration of cherry fruit and touches of spice. Complex and deep with an earthy, floral character. It’s silky texture is balanced with fresh notes and a long, distinguished finish.

As a vintage, 2014 caused a few flutters for growers because of its cool and humid nature. Only a single cask of Brunello was produced in 2014 due to the rather demanding climatic conditions and resulting smaller harvest (3–3.5 tons per hectare). The grapes were subsequently declassified and crafted with painstaking attention to detail into an exceptional Rosso di Montalcino. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 2 years in 30 hl Slavonian oak casks with an additional 6 months in bottle.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 A little lean but some pleasing berry and tile character. Medium body, lovely fruit and a juicy finish. Delicious.
 – 91 POINTS
 This wine’s tannins envelop the fruit in a tight embrace that calls for decanting, which also helps dissipate the initial smoky notes. Then it reveals scents of lavender along with snappy red-cherry flavors and brambly raspberry notes. The wine continues to evolve over several hours in the glass, picking up subtle spice notes before coming full circle to a smoky, savory finish.
 – 89 POINTS
 A light, open version, offering cherry, earth and tobacco flavors, this finishes with a pleasant astringency.
– 17.5 / 20 POINTS
 Mid ruby with watery orange tinges. Gorgeous, perfumed nose of cherry and just a touch of oak. Super-elegant, fine and lively with fine tannins. Stunning balance and length. Beautiful wine from a difficult vintage. Blueprint stuff.
