Rosso di Montalcino is the grand little brother of the great Brunello, and one that you can enjoy drinking a little earlier. This is from the remarkable Giacomo Neri, who has not only scored an almost unheard of 100 Parker points once, but twice!
Beyond the Label
Gentle spicy wood with bright cherry fruits and firm tannins
For lovers of Tuscany's ethereal Brunello di Montalcino wines, Rosso di Montalcino is a superb and more affordable alternative. It's wines don't quite last the decades of Brunello, but then sometimes you can't wait that long. This glorious pure Sangiovese is from Giacomo Neri, a winemaker renowned for his remarkable Brunellos, two of which have scored a perfect 100 points. His father, also Giacomo, founded the estate in 1971, realising the huge potential of the area's soil and climate. He passed the property to his son in 1991, who has taken excellence another step even higher, extending the vineyards, now 63 hectares, and buying up some remarkable single vineyards too. Decant this red an hour before serving with rich red meat dishes.
"From the great 100-point Giacomo Neri, his more affordable Rosso di Montalcino. Magnificent"
