A wine to keep you company. Served from a decanter, totally expressive and open. Cassis, blackberry, cherry thyme and star anise exude a depth of presence that would warm the cockles of the most discerning Brunello drinker. Full bodied, but not heavy. There’s a lightness of touch in the bright and vivid fruit. Some earthy mineral notes, fine acidity and the lingering kiss of melting tannins. Impossible not to love. Waters Wine Co.
100% Sangiovese from clay and sand soils rich in minerals. This wine is made from younger Brunello di Montalcino vineyards or from vineyards that, depending on the vintage, produce grapes with a fresh character.
“The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino is drop-dead gorgeous, slowly unfolding in the glass; at first smokey and herbal, yet gaining depths of dark red fruits and sweet spice over time. It’s silky-smooth in texture, contrasted by savory wild berry, plum and zesty acids, with purple tinged inner florals amassing toward the close. Licorice and hints of black currant linger, along with a coating of round tannins, making for a lightly structured yet still highly enjoyable finale.
