Rosso di Montalcino 2018
Intense and complex, this pure Sangiovese is laced with raspberry, cherry, iron, vanilla, cinnamon, dried flowers, smoked pepper, chalk and notes of cherry tomato on the vine. Matured in a combination of large Slavonian and smaller French oak barrels; what emerges after 12 months is an aromatic red that’s perfect for pizza night, slow-cooked ragù, tomato-based pasta dishes and goulash.
Although only tiny, Tuscany’s Pietroso has been famous since the 14th Century. Today it’s run by Gianni Pignattai and his family. When his uncle, Domenico Berni, started making wine here in the 1970s, it was just half a hectare and widely acknowledged to be the smallest estate in Montalcino. Still only five hectares today – a hectare being about a football pitch – they make old-school, but extremely elegant, Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino, which they age in the garage beneath their home. What dumbfounds us, is the value for money and attention to detail you’ll find at Azienda Agricola Pietroso.
