The 2010 Rosso di Montalcino wafts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, tobacco, licorice and spices. Initially quite floral and delicate, the wine finds its depth in the glass as the fruit emerges over time. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.

Wine maker notes
The Rosso di Montalcino shows considerable class and young vigour. It has an intense ruby colour and pronounced fragrance, with an evident note of fruit and hints of cherry, raspberry and slightly underlined with vanilla. The flavour is full-bodied, balanced, and slightly tannic, of good persistency. Serve at 18C in medium size glasses; it is excellent for first courses with red meat and game sauce, grilled and roast red and white meat and poultry.

Other text
La Poderina is located just south of Montalcino near the village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate that is well known for the elegance and balance of its grapes. Thanks to the feeling that innovation serves tradition, wines by La Poderina mature in a mixture of French oak barriques and large wooden barrels. Vineyards are geared to produce 6 tons of grapes per hectare, that is significantly lower than the 8 tons allowed by law. Brunello is produced in two versions: the regular wine Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. and the single vineyard selection Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Banale D.O.C.G.. In addition to that, La Poderina produces: Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C., Virgulto Rosso di Toscana I.G.T., Grappa di Brunello and Moscadello di Montalcino D.O.C..
