Drink now through to 2028. No need to decant before serving.

The Sassetti family have been making wine in Montalcino since the 1900s. Today the estate is composed of 14 hectares of vineyards set on the town’s rolling hills on excellent quality soils which are rich in lime. The vineyards are planted with Sangiovese Grosso, the typical Montalcino clone of the Sangiovese variety which is used to make the region’s Brunello and Rosso wines.

Rosso di Montalcino is regarded as the younger brother of Brunello, sharing many of this famous wine’s characteristics yet boasting a more modest price tag. The appellation was established in 1984 as part of a drive to protect the reputation of Brunello while providing an easy-drinking, more accessible alternative. The grapes used for Rosso di Montalcino must still be grown within the Brunello appellation, but they are only required to undergo six months of ageing in oak barrels followed by another six months ageing in the bottle before release.

The flavour profile of this youthful Italian red is energetic and lively with plenty of red cherry, plum and dried herb notes along with a bright acidity, smooth tannins and medium body. The freshness makes it a great match for tomato-based pasta dishes, pizza, or a rack of lamb grilled with Mediterranean herbs.
