Rosso di Montalcino

In Tuscany the climate is arid and warm, though cooled by a maritime breeze from the south west. Here you can find the sub-region of Montalcino, which is essentially split into two: a warmer southern region that producers earlier drinking, fuller wines - Rossos - and the Northern, higher altitude zone on Galestro soils that produces more aromatic, finer examples - Rosso's big brother - Brunello di Montalcino. These wines are released four years after the harvest, following extended ageing in cask, normally around three years. Rossos, like Brunellos, are always 100% Sangiovese but they are bottled and released after only one year of ageing. Rossos are usually lighter and more approachable young than the famously long lived Brunellos.
