The lighter styled Rosso di Montalcino, a sort of younger, "declassified" Brunello, was created so people could drink a more immediately accessible Montalcino wine while they waited for their Brunello to age, much like Nebbiolo and its higher-tier Barolo. Harmonious, elegant but not overbearing in complexity, this makes for a more balanced all-rounder. Intense ruby in colour, this wine is full of luscious fresh fruits such as ripe cherries, blackcurrants and a touch of forest floor. Aged for 6 months in Slavonian oak barrels with a further 4 months fining in bottle before release, it will go down well with foraged ingredients: pappardelle with wild mushrooms, roast chicken with tarragon and fennel sausages. Serve between 16-18 degrees and open at least an hour before serving.
