The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino is spicy, perfumed with dusty rose, dried strawberries and hints of camphor. It’s much more energetic than anticipated on the palate, as juicy acidity and vibrant red berry fruits are complemented by a sweet herbal twang. The 2020 finishes classically dry and poised, with the slightest hint of licorice that lingers. This is without a doubt one of the more pretty and balanced Rossos of this opulent vintage.
