Rosso di Montalcino Doc 2019 biologico

19,50

Rosso di Montalcino BIO 2019 from a 5-star harvest produced with artisan care at Casato Prime Donne, the first Italian winery with an all female staff.

The Rosso di Montalcino comes from the same Sangiovese vineyards where Brunello is born. The grapes are chosen to become one of the two wines based on the component of alcohol, acids and polyphenols that must be more abundant for the type destined for long aging. Very few varieties have the extraordinary versatility of Sangiovese in producing excellent young wines and refined long cellaring bottles. But to obtain the two types it is essential to harvest the grapes by hand by dividing the vineyards, according to maturation, into small areas to be harvested, vinified and aged in barrels separately.

The 2019 vintage has been characterized by a winter with little rain, mild temperatures and no snow and a rainy spring that delayed the beginning of the vegetative cycle and reduced the size of the bunches and berries, feature the other great recent harvests in Montalcino.

The oenologist Valérie Lavigne, visiting the vineyards to decide the harvest calendar, told Donatella Cinelli Colombini that from the size od the berries it seemed Cabernet, in fact the Sangiovese di Montalcino behaved exactly like the most famous French variety, by immediately giving a lot of colour to the must.

The result is a very versatile wine, intended to be consumed when young!

The Rosso di Montalcino wine is dedicated to Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s family; in fact more than the dove flying high that is part of the logo on all her labels, here there are three doves: herself, her husband Carlo and her daughter Violante.

The total production of this wine for 2018 is of about 25.000 bottles.
