Rosso di Montalcino DOCG

Winery: Poggio Dell’Aquila

Grapes: Sangiovese

Color: Red

Alcohol Content: 13.5%

Food Pairing: Beef, Lamb, Veal, Poultry, Cured Meat

Classification: The idea was to create a fresher style of wine that needed considerably less ageing time (one year with only six months in oak) than its grander sibling. This would enable producers of Brunello to market more approachable wines while waiting for their top-tier DOCG wine to age.

Flavor: Known for its flavors of black cherry and wild-berry fruit, and careful use of oak revealed in a hint of spice and vanilla.
