“The 2015 Rosso di Montalcino opens to a mild garnet color and light appearance. The bouquet is very polished and precise. It offers clean aromas of wild berry and rose hip with some bitter almond and blue violets. To me, this wine delivers on all the expectations of this lower-tier category. The wine imparts beautiful Sangiovese purity with a bright, streamlined and informal personality. This is a lovely, lovely Rosso.”

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Poggio di Sotto lies in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, an area considered the best for the production of Sangiovese. This is a textbook example of how good Sangiovese can be. Poggio di Sotto promote their Rosso as a stand-alone wine, not a little sister or inferior Brunello. This vintage is exceptional and delivers a brilliant expression of the Sangiovese grape.

Elegant wine with Burgundian finesse. Plenty of young, lively fruit flavours of cassis and black cherry. Fine, dry, silky tannins with a delicious finish of dark chocolate and blackberry. This wine is no less than a Brunello but shMid ruby with orange tinges. Subdued fruit with hints of stalks and oatmeal. Succulent, fine cherry fruit lined with posh, creamy oak and perfectly built grainy tannins. Cherries with a note of sour cream on the finish. Elegant and irresistible but, me being always the moaner, it could have easily done without the new oak.ows Sangiovese at a different stage.
