Tuscany and Umbria
2016 Cerbaiona, Rosso di Montalcino DOC
Organic. A tiny 4 hectare property, Cerbaiona is one of Montalcino's most revered estates. The vineyards were planted in the late 1970's with cuttings from Biondi-Santi. Cerbaiona captures the elegance of cooler northern Montalcino with the ripeness and fruit concentration of southern Montalcino. The Rosso di Montalcino is comparable in quality to many Brunello. A must try for Brunello fans who are not familiar with this estate. Intense and clearly defined flavors of red currant, red cherry, and red plum balanced by ripe tannins and seamlessly integrated oak. Gorgeous!
