The 2010 Rosso di Montalcino is striking. Dark red berries, flowers, licorice and mint are some of the many notes that flow from this structured, tightly wound Rosso. I very much like the energy and verticality of the 2010. This is a serious wine that will require some time and patience. Readers who enjoy firm, structured Sangioveses will flip out over the 2010. The 2010 was aged 60% in neutral barriques and 40% in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
