Il Poggiolo Rosso di Montalcino Sassello
Rosso di Montalcino DOC
A traditional and correct Rosso di Montalcino made entirely from Sangiovese which is aged in barrique for twelve months. It is fined with egg whites and bottled without filtration. Typically this is a wine that mirrors the vintage with honesty and confidence, for example in 2002 when many Rosso di Montalcino tasted more like right bank Bordeaux this was spot on, charming, light and fresh.
On the face of it quite a relaxed vintage, more at ease than the 2006 was in its youth, with unrestrained damson and cherry flavours and soft well integrated tannins. The style has moved on with the introduction of open fermenters and for the better, a great wine. 13%
