F+R 2016 ROSSO FAVOURITES COLLECTION
We have curated the top selection of Rosso di Montalcino wines from the 2016 vintage. These offer fantastic value and offer great earlier drinking insight to these top estates.
Il Maronetto – Rosso di Montalcino “Ignaccio” 2016
“This is a wine that belies its "Rosso" classification. It is seriously impressive even if it was classified a Brunello - with beautifully ripe fruit, a lovely smoky edge and sweet spice and a gorgeous seductive texture that is long on the palate and multilayered. So juicy and so clean this is outstanding”. (F+R)
Poggio di Sotto – Rosso di Montalcino 2016
“Unlikely to find a more beguilling and elegant Rosso di Montalcino on the market. This wine has a quiet intensity with floral notes, dried spice and a beautifully elegant tannin structure. It is both broad, long and very elegant with a high level of fruit purity of black cherry, blueberry and even a touch of sweet caramel and a hint of oriental spice”. (F+R)
Biondi Santi – Rosso di Montalcino 2016
“Biondi Santi experienced the 2016 as a vintage of great elegance and finesse, and the 2016 Rosso displays this in pure, bright ruby, with a perfumed floral nose of violets and sweet jasmine. Red cherries mingle with pink pepper, cloves and sweet cinnamon, with a fresh orange peel mist rising from the glass. A satiny texture surrounds the concentrated fruit core, and the wine is impeccably structure and balanced, with a long, fresh and savoury finish.” (F+R)
