Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Also known as the Baby Brunello, Carpineto Rosso di Montalcino is a complex red with aromas of dark cherry, cedar, spice, and licorice that developed following 6 months of oak aging and 6 months of bottle aging. The mouthfeel delivers a touch of bright acidity that is reminiscent of white cherry and cranberry, before yielding to a lengthy finish of mature red fruits and smooth tannins. Ageable for 10-12 years following the vintage, this pairs nicely with pork or poultry dishes.

This opens with aromas evoking damp underbrush, wild berries and grilled herbs. On the no- frills palate, lithe tannins frame dried cherry, pomegranate and a hint of culinary spice before closing on a note of powdered sage.
