Scopetone, Rosso di Montalcino, 2016

$23.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
Sangiovese from the great Tuscan vintage of 2016, raised entirely in steel. This has benefited from a couple of years of cellaring post-release, and is now at its peak. This is quite taut and fresh, showing loads of pretty cherries and a stony minerality. A great value.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 90
"The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is very pretty, understated and very delicious. Readers will find a soft-spoken Rosso that is all about persistence, delicacy and class. The 2016 is not an obvious wine, but it is compelling. Sweet floral and red cherry notes perk up the brilliant finish in this light to medium-bodied Rosso from Scopetone." -Antonio Galloni
