2014 Rosso di Montalcino Cordella



The 2014 Rosso di Montalcino from Cordella is a superb value wine from an under-the-radar producer...

 

Antonio Galloni describes it as “one of the richer, more powerful 2014 Rossos” and scores it on a level or higher than Rosso di Montalcinos from Uccelliera, Poggio Antico and Lisini. Galloni also highlights this wine as an excellent one for “drinking now and over the next year or two”. This wine is immediately available.

 

FINE+RARE have visited Cordella a number of times in recent years and have always been impressed, we concur with Galloni that this is a rounded, rich, powerful and extremely tasty Rosso.

 

Cordella is still relatively unknown for many within the UK, but this lack of attention is wholly underserved: these are great wines which have remained remarkably affordable for the quality and are a real boon for any well-stocked Italian cellar.

 

Owner Maddalena Cordella is a dynamic winemaker who puts inordinate care into producing Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino of the highest quality. Her philosophy ensures quality at every stage of the winemaking process, from biodynamic farming to strict selection of the very best grapes and fermentation using natural yeasts native to the Cordella vineyards. This high-attention approach results in carefully crafted wines that offer simply brilliant value for money at under GBP 10 per bottle in bond.

A plump, forward wine, the 2014 Rosso di Montalcino is a solid choice for drinking now and over the next year or two. This is one of the richer, more powerful 2014 Rossos I tasted. Dark cherry, mocha and spice flesh out on the juicy finish. Feb 2016, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2016-2018

Bright and inviting on the nose with cherry and red plum and red pepper spice. The structure is tightly-knit and sapid, but also showing some complexity with sugared violets and herbs creeping in on the sweet finish. Stylistically this wine is traditional, while still shining with exuberant young fruit.
