    This little wine possesses all the hallmarks of the best Rosso di Montalcinos: beautiful high toned red fruit and refreshing acidity, drinkability, and a balanced, earthy minerality. This is also a rather serious Rosso, and you get a lot of wine for a very reasonable price, as this is one of our direct imports. Poggiarellino Estate small and family owned, with a farm that produces not only grapes, but wheat and olives as well.

    The Poggiarellino 2014 Rosso di Montalcino exceeds expectations in what is certainly one of the more challenging vintages of late. Immensely fragrant spiced strawberry fruit abounds throughout with additional earthy undertones and plenty of lingering fruit on the finish. Open now with meats and cheeses and enjoy this tremendous value Rosso.

    Here is a wine that packs a wallop and lots of bang for your buck all in one! Give this rosso about an hour to open up and stand back, on the palate you will find strawberries and black cherries, a little bitter coco and some toasty oak & vanilla, fine tannins and a hint of Montalcino dust on the long finish.
