"A mouthful of juicy raspberry, this red also evokes spice and mineral flavors. Harmonious and ready to enjoy, with fine length and hints of licorice and tobacco on the finish. Drink now through 2018. "
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"Bright redruby. Pungently fruity aromas of raspberry, red cherry jam and balsamic spices. Rich, ripe and pure, offering balsamic dark cherry and aromatic herb flavors. Finishes with a colalike note, delicately peppery, noble tannins and plenty of ripe fruit. This lovely Rosso di Montalcino offers more fruit and less herbs and spices than does this producer's Brunellos. Castiglion del Bosco's Rosso di Montalcino is a ruby red color. The nose is delicate and full of typical varietal aromas. In the mouth it is pleasant and harmonious. Its unique versatility makes it suitable for everyday drinking. This is a pleasant, modern wine, that represents a fresh and wellrounded expression of the Sangiovese grape. Its intense varietal aromas are the result of a combination of traditional and modern techniques in the cellar."
