Martoccia Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C. 2018
Award Winning Wine
Reviewed by: Monica Larner
“Here’s a terrific Tuscan red to drink with simple but hearty home cooked meals like pasta or bean soup. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is packed tight with blackberry and black currant. Those aromas are followed by mild spice. tar and moist chewing tobacco. The wine is both fruity and savory at the same time. You can drink this fun wine without a second thought. Some 30.000 bottles were made.”
Long-considered to be the little brother of Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is, in fact, a wine of great distinction and depth where the distinguishing fruity black cherry and wild berries unite with light sensations of vanilla and spice. First courses with meat sauces, grilled dishes, roasts and medium-aged cheeses bring out the best in its deep and balanced flavor.
