2018 La Poderina Rosso di Montalcino Rosso di Montalcino Tuscany Italy
Ruby red color. Elegant, intense nose with typical notes of red fruit such as cherry and raspberry, slightly underlined with vanilla. Full and balanced sip, with a persistent fruity finish.
Excellent with first courses with meat and game sauces, grilled and roast red or white meat dishes, and poultry
I find a remarkably pretty display of fresh strawberry and lifting floral tones, crushed stone, and hints of peppery herbs in La Poderina's 2018 Rosso di Montalcino. The 2018 is soft, motivated by brisk acids with a twang of zesty tart berry fruits and inner violet tones. It isn’t just juicy; the 2018 also has a wonderful twist of citrus, spice, minerals and brisk acids throughout the finish that just begs you to take another sip. Drinking window: 2020 - 2028.
