Mastrojanni - Rosso di Montalcino 2020 750ml
2020 Rosso di Montalcino DOC 750ml
In 1984, the Rosso di Montalcino DOC was established to allow winemakers to offer a product in between the lengthy ageing periods necessary for the region’s flagship wine, Brunello di Montalcino.
The wine is still made from the same grape, Sangiovese Grosso, grown in the same zone, however it is given significantly less ageing time in oak and in bottle prior to release.
Declassified Brunello can also find its way into Rosso di Montalcino wines and they tend to be lighter, fresher and more approachable at an earlier stage.
- 100% Sangiovese
- A light, fruity, slightly savoury wine
- Ideal with spiced foods, such as Middle Eastern or southeast Asian cuisines
