Col D'Orcia Rosso Di Montalcino (DOC) 2020 (Italy: Tuscany) (ID# 4139)

Name Col D'Orcia Rosso Di Montalcino (DOC) 2020 (ID# 4139)
Varietal Sangiovese
Region Italy: Tuscany
Notes "The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino wafts up with a classic mix of earth tones, Tuscan dust and bright strawberries. It’s silky yet cool-toned in feel with inner violet and lavender tones over a core of tart wild berry fruit. The 2020 leaves a coating of youthfully grippy tannins, yet it keeps the mouth watering as sweet minty herbs slowly fade. This is a fun and fruit-focused Rosso that maintains wonderful balance, and I love how savory, almost salty it is at times." (Vinous)

Additional Notes

"This young Sangiovese offers classic varietal aromas of woodland berries, camphor and tilled earth along with a whiff of blue flower. Ripe but also showing bright fruit, the full-bodied, savory palate doles out fleshy Marasca cherry, prune and licorice alongside taut, fine-grained tannins that grip the finish." (Wine Enthusiast) "There is a light umami note of shitake in the 2020 Rosso Di Montalcino as well as candied berries and pressed flowers. Medium-bodied, but generous with ripe cherry, strawberry, and fine tannins as well as a clean and polished finish, this is a lovely Rosso to drink over the next several years." (Jeb Dunnuck)
