Vinous, fruity and slightly raw, the 2016 Rosso di Montalcino offers simple lines and a one-dimensional presentation. There are loads of plump fruit with darker tones of leather and crushed mineral at the back. This wine ages in large oak casks for eight months to firm up its mild structure and texture. Earthy notes appear on the close.
