The Rosso di Montalcino is made from the same grapes as the La Togata Brunello Jacopus, but with a shorter aging period. The wine is aged for 12 months in large Slavonian oak barrels of 80 HL, with another 6 months in the bottle. Release of the rosso allows the winery to get some much needed cash while the Brunello is aging.
The wine is fresh with cherry fruit, black currant and some spices. The palate is well-structured with fresh red fruits, roses and peonies. There is firm acidity and lively tannins that make this an excellent wine to pair with rich foods. Just 10,000 bottles are produced
Pair with marbled red meats, mushroom pasta or Pecorino Romano
