rosso bThough Brunello may be Montalcino's foremost claim to fame, the Rosso di Montalcino DOC that is made in the same area and with the same Sangiovese grape variety is also an appellation to be taken seriously.

It reconciles structure and fruit with the freshness typical of a wine to be enjoyed young.
The Rosso di Montalcino is ideally suited to meals featuring pasta with meat, mushroom or truffle sauces, meat dishes such as pork, veal, poultry and game, and semi mature cheeses.
It should be served in full-bodied stemware at a temperature of around 18°C.
