Tasting Notes

Montalcino's most famous single vineyard is the Montosoli hill, Altesino made this name famous when they designated their best Brunello with their northeastern-facing vineyard's name, Montosoli. Nello Baricci and his family have lived and farmed Sangiovese on their southeastern-facing slope of the Montosoli hill since the 1930s. Their wines are pure, supple, lithe and complex; they are full of tobacco, sweet earth, licorice, violets, rosemary and have long and persistent finishes, as evidenced in this fantastic Rosso, meant to drink now and over the next five years.

    This Rosso di Montalcino from Baricci is a winner. On the nose, berry notes quickly move into more savory qualities like cheese and charcuterie. With a great balance of chewy tannins and acidity, this wine opens up quite nicely with time. Strawberry, plum and black cherry flavors with a rustic mineral finish. A great Monday through Friday wine.

    Although the price of Rosso di Montalcino has risen the past several years, we're pleased to offer a number of excellent ones at phenomenal price points via our direct import program. Baricci is always at the top of my list as it's such a pure expression of Sangiovese that offers immediate drinking. Their 2014 is a definite triumph in a difficult vintage as it's brimming with vibrant fruit, ripe tannins and just the right touch of acidity. It's already flying out the door so be sure and purchase a few bottles before it's gone.

    All elements you would want in a great wine come together in this Rosso, a beautiful example from the Baricci family. Red fruits meet powdery earth, in combination with light minerality from the rocky, marine soils present on Montosoli Hill where the vineyard sits. Tannins are minimal as the wine is fermented in stainless steel. A favorite of mine from Montalcino and one to drink both on weeknights and special occasions.

    Woo-hoo! Baricci’s back in town! Ever time I raise a glass of this wine to my lips, it brings me back to Montalcino. Why? because there is so much Montalcino in the glass. This Rosso reveals perfumed, ripe fruit of plum, cassis and kirsch, some leather and cassis mid-palate, and earthiness that meld into ripe strawberries, spices and minerals on the long finish.
