Collosorbo Rosso di Montalcino 2016
Collosorbo's estate vineyards combine three of the region's soil types: red clay, gray galestro, and sandy limestone. Grapes are harvested by hand and all wines are aged in neutral oak cask in the family cellar beneath the walls of the estate's ancient castle. The Rosso is one of Montalcino's great values. Full-bodied, complex and exotic. This is traditional Sangiovese at its finest.
JS93: "Offers more concentration on the nose with mostly notes of blackberry pie, plum cake and even some Christmas pudding. On the palate, the fruit is melded beautifully with chewy yet tight tannins and taut acidity. Great stuff for what it is. Drink now." - James Suckling
