"Another reserved and fruity Rosso di Montalcino with beautiful cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a crisp finish. Drink now. - (October 2013)"

Stephen Tanzer 89
"Dark ruby; one of the deepest-colored 2011 Rosso di Montalcino wines. Sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) complement candied red cherry and raspberry syrup on the rich nose. Then big, ripe and rich on the palate, with flavors of dark cherry macerated in alcohol, vanilla, oak and minerals lingering impressively. Finishes with vibrant acidith, smooth tannins, a trace of alcoholic heat and more than a hint of residual sugar. This is a superripe style of Rosso di Montalcino but I'm betting its that creamy sweetness and perfumed personality are going to be hard to resist."

Antonio Galloni 88
"Ciacci's 2011 Rosso di Montalcino is one of the darker wines of the year. Black cherries, flowers, spices and cloves all take shape in a powerful, broad Rosso that stands out for its sheer intensity. The ripeness of the year in this southern most part of Montalcino comes through in spades. Not a lightweight, this serious Rosso is all about richness."

Wine Information:
Rosso di Montalcino is 100% Sangiovese Grosso from Ciacci's organically farmed Montalcino Estate. It is fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats before being transferred to large Slovenian oak where it rests for 12 months. Just over 1000 cases are made each year.
