What is it & what is it like? Rosso di Montalcino is very often referred to as "baby Brunello" because it is from the same family and almost literally "cut from the same cloth", as it is also made with 100% Sangiovese grapes. The baby, or Junior, tag refers to the less intense taste compared to Brunello. This is partly because of the choice of grapes and partly the shorter ageing time (16 months for this Rosso). 

A good Rosso di Montalcino, as we have found, is just a different expression than Brunello and is to suit different occasion and mood. Its aroma and tastes are more dominated by red fruits, with some Christmas spices and coffee. It is medium in body and tannins, so can fit well with a weekend lunch of roast meat, even pasta. Try to open at least an hour ahead to allow the spices to be expressed better. Serve at around 18 degrees C.
