Tasting Note:

The Montosoli area has long been recognised as one of the absolute great spots for Sangiovese and Brunello di Montalcino. Located on the northern side of Montalcino, where the vineyards are steep, windy and cool, but slightly lower in elevation compared to the south side (at around 280-350m). The soils tend to have more limestone and hard clay, with complex fossilised influences. Riccardo’s Montosoli is bright and radiant, with lovely ripe strawberry and pressed raspberry notes. There is concentration here but finesse too with a touch of salt and earth on finish.
